    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.

    Out Of Respect

    When I began to practice my principle of listening to others' stories it was because I felt in hopes that someone would some day listen to my stories just as intentfully. But the world is doomed and no such things happen. I still listen out of habit and general respect.  I find...

    It's One Way to Learn

     That way, you don't have to repeat their mistakes and suffer their consequences.  You learn a hot pan burns the hard way but how much easier it is to learn it without suffering the burn?  Sometimes, in life there is no other teacher than direct experience.  ...
