Can Anyone Hear Me?

You wouldn't believe how many times I ask myself that question a day. It's like, no matter what I say, no one really takes any notice. They either smail and act like they've been listening and I think that's the worst thing you can do. I wish people would really hear what I'm saying because there is so much I'm passionate about. There is even too much to write in here ... I think it's especially bad for me because so much has happened within my family and with IT (my dad, or is he?!) *X*

Most people are not good listeners and even fewer are good "active listeners" where they really try to imagine how you are feeling. Walk a mile in your shoes kind of thing. They are so self absorbed, that they haven't the time or the interest to really focus on what you are saying. Being heard is so important and yet it rarely happens.
