    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.

    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 don't see why we should try and live for other people approval. We should live the way we like to live and simply not care what others think. That's how you'll end up happy

    I think. Which is not always so good. Because deep somewhere I also have things I want to do and need. If they align, then it can seem just perfect, but they dont always do that.
