Who is your best listener?

No one can live in purely sad or happy life. Therefore, we have both happiness and trouble, which have to be confided when there is too much. One can turn to the family, friends or strange net pals to talk out of one's heart, talk about the trouble or make a complaint, even talk about the secrets you don't want others to know. There are the way to relieve one's stress in modern times. Confiding has become one necessity of people's emotion. Are you happy? Is everything going well in your career and family? Do you have too much stress and trouble? Everyone has something to confide and would like to talk it heartily. Who is your faithful listener, family, a friend, a college or a stranger?

I don't have a faithful listener. But I like to talk to strangers more than friends or family. They can't use your feelings against you or bring the subject back up later. It is just easier it seems. I would like to have a faithful listening stranger, anyone up for the job? lol

I'm lucky enough and ever so grateful to be a part of a close circle of ladies. There's only 4 of us but each of us is ALWAYS there for one of the others. I don't know what I do without these ladies in my life. We've each gone through our own trials and troubles and sometimes its good to just have someone who knows you and your little idiosyncrisys to listen and tell you straight out how they see it. Whether or not they agree, they are never afraid to tell it like it is - but its always said with the most love and we know that we can depend on each other.

I would have to say that my best listener is my fiance. When things are getting more difficult for me, whether it's with school or job-searching or with regards to my parents, I know that he's there to listen to me no matter what. I know he's there to give me advice, or to comfort me, or just be there. And on top of that, I know that he's not going to judge me, which helps me a lot and think we all need that feeling of being judged when we're down or something like that.

actually its not who since i seldom open my problem to other people or to my friends and family. it was my pillow who serve as my best listener.. my pillow knows if im crying at night and that no one will know it... my pillow absorb not just my problem but also my tears... poor pillow.. i wonder what the pillow will tell me if the pillow can only talk. Seriously speaking.. its my best friend whose not only my listener but also my shock absorber. though as i said. i didnt share to them everything.. only those problem that i think too big to handle.
