The Art of Listening

Standard

When someone comes to you to rant about an issue that may seem ‘insignificant’ to you, hear them out. And never tell them how other people have it worse and/or quote instances from your own life of issues that seem ‘bigger’ to you, completely disregarding their problem thus. For at times, all that people need is a person willing to listen to them, however little sense they make and simply be, if not anything else. And doing something of that sort does not just drive them further in their problem but also adds on a sense of insecurity and inferiority; and a guilt in them for having approached someone for an issue so ‘wee’, resulting into something as drastic as them never breaking out of their own shell and opening up again.

Doesn’t harm lending someone an ear for a while, does it?

Opinions

Standard

I’ll start this by saying I am a VERY opinionated person and a vocal one at that!

Opinions are who we are, our morals, values and beliefs…..

Opinions are what make the world an interesting place. A world without different opinions would be a boring place….

Opinions are what make us who we are as an individual. They are based off things we have learned since day one, they are based off beliefs we have and the morals and values we stand on. It’s sad that our opinions are also 90% of the reason why we fight and treat others like crap. They are the number one reason why people make fun of others and find reasons to break someone’s spirit. It’s sad that we can’t just live knowing that you won’t always agree with someone but that is okay. It’s sad that people can’t agree to disagree and move on instead they feel the need to make fun, call names and belittle one another. I wonder if for one day you chose to allow others to have their point of view and you have yours and it still be okay if you’d realize how much happier you would be.

One Lovely Blog Award

Standard

03-one-lovely-blog-award-badge

A while ago,  mindxxxheart     has nominated for the lovely blog award, I love reading her posts especially poems you should check her blog https://mindxxxheart.wordpress.com/

Rules:

  • Each nominee must THANK the person who nominated them and link their blog in the post.
  • They must include the rules and add the blog award badge as an image
  • must add 7 facts about them.
  • Then nominate 15 people.

Facts about me:

  • The word compromise doesn’t exist in my dictionary, I stick to my principles and opinions till the end.
  • I am more of a listener than a speaker I love to listen to other people stories and problems, though I don’t listen or want advice or “helpful remarks” from anyone, I can make decisions on my own. When someone tries to give me an advice I immediately stop listening to them and I tend to say a lot of “I know that” and “I don’t care” or roll my eyes,; and when I’m not in the mood of arguing I pretend to smile and shake my head to whatever they are saying. I am not arrogant by any means, but I like to  make my  own choices. People often tell me what they think is best for me, often with the best intentions, but I believe one need to find the courage to do something different.
  • I have a very close relationship with both of my parents: my mom is like my best friend, and my personality and ideals are very similar to my father. Though both are very overprotective and drive me crazy, but at the same time I drive them crazier with my independence and attitude.
  • I am highly impatient; I often make quick decisions without taking time, details bore me so I ignore them and tend to see the big picture. I want quick result and I absolutely hate waiting. Life is short so why waste time analyzing situation.
  • My only competitor is me; I have no desire whatsoever to play the game of being better than anyone in any way, shape or form, I just aim to improve myself. That’s me, and that’s why I am free and whatever happen I cannot lose.
  • I’m reckless about my health and I have always suffered from headaches accompanied sometimes with nosebleed, though lately I’m suffering from painful headaches on daily basis.
  • Though I’m shy person, I am really an outgoing person, I’m always full of energy and I can’t stand still I have to be out somewhere/anywhere.

I am not going to nominate anyone, as I can’t limit my choices to 15 blogs only.
