Pondering With a Purpose - Listening
I haven't participated in Brenda's Pondering With a Purpose hop before, but I've always wanted to. Since I'm supposed to be doing school work, what better thing to do then find something else to do? :)
This week's prompt is: are you a listener? or are you a talker?
I'm a bit of both. Mostly, I'm a listener. Why? Because many times I feel like no one cares what I have to say, or that I just don't have anything interesting enough to say, so I don't. I often just listen to other people go on and on about whatever is on their mind. And it really doesn't bother me. I'm an observer. It's why I like psychology so much, you get to try to figure people out. No, I don't "psychologize" everyone I come into contact with, but I do believe people are very interesting and I think we learn so much from the people around us. Now anyone who has read my blog would probably say, "yeah right, that chick is a talker!" and given the opportunity, I sure can talk! But I don't do it a lot and I think that's why I have so much to say when I do. And a blog is a nice place to talk without being interrupted. There is nothing worse than trying to communicate something to someone and having them interrupt you to tell you why their story/situation is so much more interesting than yours.
PS This is my 500th post! I guess I have something to say after all...
