    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.

    Sometimes

    Whether I listen or not depends on who's talking and what they're saying.

    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...
