These past few days I’ve done a lot of listening, whether it was friends, family, or just people I interact with on the internet. What I’ve come to realize is that everyone has a story to tell from their own personal experience.
Don’t you hate it when you are at a social gathering, and you are about to tell a story and then your friend or perhaps your Mom or girlfriend jumps in and takes over the story and finishes it for you?
Or better yet, you are telling about a project you did at school or work and you said “I did this and I did that” only to have your colleague nudge you to say “No, he meant we did this and that …”. So you just blush and continue right? Or do you start to collect resentment?
