    Fall Asleep?!

    I've heard people tell me to "pretend to fall asleep" when people start going off on longer stories. Seriously? You can't give up those few minutes of your life to make a person feel accepted... and you pretend they bored you to SLEEP to get out of it?! LAME. Everyone has a...

    Out Of Respect

    Your Thoughts and Opinions Matter to Me

    If there's ever a situation going down I like to know what everyone or that person has to think or say, I want to listen. I seem to be very good listener.. or reader and want to help.

    I'm A Great Listener...

    I was never a talkative person. I'm always better at listening to what people have to say. I take what they say, think about it, and try and help them with whatever their talking about. I just don't like listening to boring people.

    Strange thing, I like to listen to problems and help people fix them. But I feel if I ignore mine, they will go away.
