Ever Get This Problem?

The problem with being a good listener is that people become so used to you listening to them and giving advice that after a while, they forget that you might want to talk to them about something too. Or they incessantly seek you out specifically to complain about the latest atrocity that's happened in their life, instead of just wanting to have a nice conversation.

I like being there for people and knowing that I might be able to help, but there comes a point where they stop seeing you as your own person and more like an agony aunt or a shrink. Just don't forget guys that you all have your own opinions and problems too and thar they're just as important as the things other people bring to you. Friends and family need to understand that listening is a two way system.
