Feeling depressed, anxious, or lost? You are not alone. I will be using this site to help you become the best version of yourself and ultimately create a community of like-minded people.
Nowadays, most people don’t listen to understand; they listen to reply.
This is one of my biggest pet peeves and I see it all the time. Whenever I start talking, I can see the person immediately stops thinking about what I’m saying and they are just waiting for me to stop talking so they can reply.
Instead of listening to what I have to say, and trying to understand me; all the person is doing is thinking about their response and waiting to give it.
The worst is when someone refuses to look up from their phone. They nod and pretend to be listening but once you finish your sentence you realize they were not listening at all. Or they may have heard you put they weren’t listening to understand.
So, please pay more attention to this next time you talk to someone. Give them your full attention and just listen.
Don’t judge what the person is saying. Don’t jump to conclusions.
Just because you think a certain way and have certain beliefs, doesn’t mean what the other person is saying isn’t true.
Be more open minded. Be open to learning new things. You don’t have believe everything you hear, but at least be willing to listen and understand.
Thank you. I hope you were listening lol.
