    Listen

    I like to think I understand people but I suppose that's simply my own perception. I tend to be more of a listener than a talker. That's not to say I can't talk ... I can talk a lot! Usually though I find myself listening. Maybe I just have friends that talk a lot! lol Much can...

    They Think I'm Stupid Enough

    Some people tend to think that I was stupid and insensitive. They say I'm a bit slow.. but how is it that I can always lead my friends to say the truth whenever they wish not to say them? Indeed, I sometimes pretend not to feel what they are feeling... but only to see how'd...

    Just Listen

    Why? Because I listen. You can learn a lot just by listening. I'm not talking about eavesdropping either. Just listen to what other people say and you'll learn more than you think. Then if someone asks you a question you can answer thoughtfully.That's how I got my understanding.

    Holden Caulfield Syndrome

    I grew up in a house completely controlled by emotional undercurrents. My father, who we've recently decided demonstrates borderline personality behavior, had made us all slaves to his moods. My mother, a people pleaser, taught us to be afraid of other people's disapproval...

    Why Do I Understand?

         In high school I was voted most quiet by a few people. I moved around so much I developed the habit to sit and listen. My Dad also taught us children were to be seen and not heard. This habit has carried me into addulthood and some fellow workers do not...

    I Don't Discuss All Subjects Openly

    ... but that doesn't mean I haven't any knowledge or understanding. There are topics I won't discuss, can't discuss, or give my personal experience from. I guess it's up to you to decide if I understand or not when I say, "trust me, I understand".

    It Is Not Fair

    I am a thinking person. I am a feeling person. I am an observant person. I see everything that happens and I understand why it all happens. You blame me. But it is you. It all happens because of you.
