The hardest thing to do for people is to just shut it and listen!
Repetitive gibberish on our part can be one of the worst turn offs for anyone on this planet! The more one talks, the more you push people away!
Most of us know when to shut it, why to shut it, where to shut it, and how to shut it but there are some that do not. Many that don't know to shut it just don't have the ability to so because of their mental instabilities. Many which can be brought on by excessive critical thinking, excessive drinking, and the abuse of legal or illegal drugs.
Give someone the gift of listening with the intention to understand and to be present- give yourself that same gift! If you can't, then try to figure out why you can't! Even if it means to resolve some mental damage!
