Are you the person that everybody calls to whine and complain to? Do you want to rip your ears off because your friend talks about the same thing during every phone call? Are you tired of being the listener while no one listens to you?

I have several friends who would call up on me to whine about other people. Actually I have no problem with this except with one person. This person would repeat the same thing over and over again in a short period of time. Ever had listening to the same gripe five times in less than 15 minutes? Not many people really listen to me. I used to keep things to myself. Several times I started talking but I was cut off with negative remarks. It seems that many people expect me to remain in the role of listener and supporter. all the best, rosdimy

I had a friend who would tell me all their dating woes everyday and ask for advice. They would never ask about me, nor would they let me talk about myself at any length. I listened for months and gave good, solid advice that they would never take. I finally just had to say that I didn't want to hear about it anymore. It was very frustrating and exhausting and it really made me realize what a selfish friend they were.

If you want to they listen you with attention and you want to capture the attention around you; first learns how to listen with attention, to interrogate with reasonably and calmy respond. After that, you will hear better. ;)

Yes, sometime I'd prefer a deaf. I'm bored when my friends say something again and again. But I'll soon be all right soon. They take you as a real friend and tell you their troublies, perhaps they're really in bad mood and need your help. I'll be extremely angry if no one listens to me. But at least one or two friend will listen to me, that's enough.
