    Ears Not Mouth!

    I definitely prefer listening over speaking. some people don't know that, they either keep telling me to speak more or call me very  shy. i like listening, and like it when others speak more.

    child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”

    It Matters

    I listen and watch and observe others and attempt to jump in when needed. Not as the nosey neighbor but as a caring individual who just hates to see others suffer. I listen... do you?
