Lalalala.. I don't wanna hear this!

STOP TALKING

I just realized something about myself today…..I get so excited when I am having an interesting conversation with someone and I go on and on without barely letting someone get a word in. This is truly only when I am excited, or upset about something. This can be an issue, especially when I’m upset because I don’t hear the entire story because I cut the conversation by interrupting. Sometimes it is not what it seems, but I never stop to listen first.

Everyone have a bad habit that is hard to break…but this is definitely a habit I need to control. It’s hard because whether I want to admit it or not I have been like this for as long as I can remember.

That is probably why my conversations go better and are more succesful when I write letters because I actually have to be quiet to read the response of the person I wrote.

I don’t know what made me think of this, but I usually review my day and try to figure out what I did wrong, I think about things that made me laugh during the day, but this made me cringe. I know I hate when I can’t get a word in when I’m continuously interrupted, so I guess this is something I need to work on. Why? Because I don’t want to be one of those people who make everything “all about them”. Or worse than that, listening to someone who goes on and on, is like reading a run-on paragraph or sentence and you never know when it’s going to end.  I want people to feel like I’m interested in what they have to say, and that I’m a good listener, even if I pretend to hear what they are saying. I’m just kidding! That is why just like a good structured paragraph and sentence that have commas and periods telling you when to stop, so should a a well-communicated conversation be between two people, so that it will be well-understand. Besides, when you stop and listen sometimes you can actually find out some awesome things that maybe you never knew or couldn’t even believe.

SO GO AHEAD, I’M LISTENING………!!!!!!!
