I Like Listening to People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 471 People

    Lots of people complain about their friends

    constantly "b*tching" about their issues. I like to listen to other peoples' stories and I even encourage them to tell me more about it. I try to help them out. I don't want to, nor do I care if they don't want to hear about my problems (as most Normal People apparently want). I...

    I find people interesting

    and I feel good about myself when I can provide a safe place for people to talk about things they need to say but might not be able to others. I like Experience Project because I'm part of a collective audience that people share with. I don't mind being an ear when someone...

    It happens when people find no one around them

    to share their thoughts or experiences. They don't find someone to express themselves. I like listening to those and it makes me feel good when they feel better after an honest interaction.

    It's more I like stories of people's lives. People by themselves are just so interesting, and they have so much to share on an individual level. The things you learn from others can be so significant to them, but life changing for you. Different thoughts, goals, and personal...

    One Mouth, Two Ears

    I quote 'you have two ears and one mouth for a reason' I totally reckon this is true, you should listen more than you should talk. You learn form listening, you don't from speaking. Remember that.

    I've Often Wondered....

    I've had this thought in my head for some time, and I've always wondered what it would be like. What if you posted an ad in the local newspaper, or on craigslist or something, detailing how you will be at a specific place, at a specific time...say a park bench or a certain diner...

    Listening Helps Me Understand.

    I love listening to people tell stories that give me a glimpse into who they are.  I love  being non-judgemental and open enough that people feel comfortable sharing with me.  I am endlessly fascinated with humanity and wish it were more commonplace for the...

    I don't get why I like to listen to people

    or friends talk sometimes. If its a group of friends i chill like I'm not there. If its just a friend i reply just to keep the conversation going and more interesting. But really I just want to sit there and listen what they got to say. Is anyone else like this?

    Always Liked Listening

    I said to my councellor, I'm always listening to people, listening to their problems. She asked if this was because I wanted them to do the same in return. Almost offended I replied, 'No! I just love to listen to people's problems!'

    I Love Listening to People ...

    I love listening to people from all walks of life and any age. I find I ask a few too many questions sometimes though as I become so interested in there story. Everybody has a story to tell, if we just take the time to listen. You never know, you may even learn something..

    People Are Interesting

    I find it fascinating to hear other peoples life experience. The stories here on EP have been amazing and I have found myself getting emotionaly involved with what is going on in the lives of people I have never met. I am turning into a sap.
