All about you

You spoke of yourself
But you never once
Asked about me.
So I listened
As the footsteps of my soul
Walked away.

  1. You know, it’s been proven that the thing that people most like to talk about is themselves. It really is a shame.. People often find zero interest in others, they even say people forget names so easily because they aren’t really listening to you when they tell you their name, they’re too busy waiting to tell you theirs!

    1. Interesting and possibly quite true.

      I take a while to remember names because I’m a visual learner. If I see it written I tend to remember it faster.

      Being a good listener is an art. Not everyone is good at it.

      Some are active listeners:
      asking questions, giving appropriate responses. (Good)

      Some are passive listeners:
      Silence, no reaction, no indication they are listening at all. (Bad)
