    When people walk away from you, let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn't mean they are bad people. It just means that their part in your story is over.

    I'm not the type of person

    that just sits there and states. I notice indirectly but It's almost like a hobby for me. I enjoy the study of a humans reaction, how they behave around what and when and all that fun stuff. I'm not a *********, i enjoy this study. Helps me learn more about people and I can...

    I Like The Good Stuff

    I saw   a man help a woman with a broken down car. I saw a woman tell another that she dropped something & walked a ways to give it back. A man  helped me at the grocery..I was too short to reach the top shelf. He just came up & said, " need some help getting that...

    It says "I observe people",

    but for me it's deeper than that. I can be around someone and just feel that they are sad, or distracted by inner thoughts, or faking a smile behind a mask. I can immediately sense when something's wrong without any words...just by them being behind me or close by. It's weird...

    Careful with our words.

    We each create our own happiness and the Universe is always listening. The answer you get may not be what you want but what you need instead. Speak love you create love. Speak hate you create your very own private hell. You know who you are ;))

    It's like a bad habit.

    I can literally sit for hours and just watch people. I like to watch behavior and reactions. It's actually a very interesting thing to me. In fact people are interesting all together. I like how different people have different body languages, different ways of responding...

    People Watching

    I love watching people and their odd behaviours. I find it so interesting, and at times, funny. I went to the fair last week with my boyfriend and watching people on the rides was so much fun, the expressions on peoples faces when they think no-one else is looking...

    I am one that like to observe people

    and see how they act around certain people.. This has lead to people thinking I'm stuck up or mean because I don't talk so much because I like to sit back and watch other people.. I find it interesting to see other peoples behaviour .. Especially in certain situations ..

    I don't know when I started doing this,

    Sometimes I Have Wished That I Was Not Watching~

    I watch people. This is a most interesting hobby. I have found that sitting back and observing things around me makes me happy most times. I suppose it’s all about what one chooses to notice. One thing for sure, there is a lot of good and bad to be seen out there. Personally...

    Day-to-day Basis

    ...observe

    I love to observe people and to learn more about them. It's how I determine if I want to be friends with someone or not and etc. It is advantageous to observe people, because then you usually learn something.

    I used to be a psych major,

    so suffice to say I find people super interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if I've creeped people out by looking at them every now and then. I'm just always watching and analyzing without thinking about it.

    People-watching: Many Different Reasons

    I am a long-time watcher of people. I guess it could be called a hobby. Ever since I was very young, I have felt like I was not a part of the action, but merely an observer. There are so many different people, and different activities that they engage in. For every type of person...

    Clueless In Chicago

    I grew up in Chicago being being about people. I desperately needed to know why people behave the way they do.  I began reading Freud at age 14 and continued my formal and informal study of human behavior up to age 47 when I finally felt I had learned enough. One of the many...
