Who is the Best Listener in Your Life?

The listener -  One can turn to the family, friends or the 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. These are the way to relieve one's stress in modern times. Confiding has become one necessity of people's emotion.

The sorrow and happiness are twins popping in and out in your life one after the other. Whichever comes, you have no other choice but to face the music. 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 the 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. These are the way to relieve one's stress in modern times. Confiding has become one necessity of people's emotion. Are you satisfied your current life? 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?

There is no one that I completely confide in. I do discuss things with certain friends, but I never reveal everything. I don't trust people enough to do so.

I have seen many ups and downs in my life.Now the life is somewhat stable and this could have been even better.But no complaints as I know that each and every one will have his day.I can wait.The person who I confide always in my life is my life.There is not a single secret in my life without her knowing it.I always feel free ,relieved and happy that way.But to think of it I do not know whether she carries the burden in her mind.

Whenever times get tough for me, I typically turn to either my husband or to my mother. The reason that I have two people to whom I turn is that sometimes the things that are weighing heavily on me concern my husband's family and when it involves his family I don't feel that I can confide in him. However, for the greatest majority of things, I know that I can confide in him. If you would have asked a couple days ago if things were going well in my life, I would have said that they were, but the last couple of days have been bad for me in that my father-in-law has decided that I am not good enough for his son and he has been calling my husband filling him with reasons that we should get divorced.

My best listener is my family. That includes everyone in the family. They all listen to my stories whether it's happy, sad, disappointing or whatever. .. I always tell the things that happened to me in a day and I love sharing it with them .. Happy posting and have a good day.

In my life when things go wrong and happiness fills my heart the only person I would run to is my husband. Even before we got married he is the one Ive been confiding all my ups and down. I trusted him and confide him all the details that happen in my life.

My best friend/neighbor share everything with each other.... I try telling my husband things and it is like he does not understand or want to know what i am saying sometimes..... Then I will tell him again a couple days later forgetting that I told him because of no response the first time and he says "you told me a hundred times" Girls how many times does your man say that.... So that proves it they are really are listening even if they do not act like they are..... I usually tell my mom and my sister alot of things also but mostly my friend gets all the information and I get hers....

My mother is the best listener. She is always there, but only offers advice if asked. Sometimes you don't want advice, you just want to vent or talk to someone. I wish I could say that it was my husband, he does okay, but is not the best.

Before September I didn't confide in anyone. I didn't think anyone woud truly listen . but My best friend let me tell him about the guy I thought I had fallen for and he truly helped me out. I have ben happy ever since. True there are things that come up that could bring me down but just knowing he is out there wishing the best for me really helps. I am in a god spot these days.

In my case that I always carried on a problem. No one will listen to me but God. I confide all the sorrow and bitterness that I suffer from this life. No one in my family that listen to even do they understand my situation. I understand them because no one will say bad or wrong with me. They believe in me and all what I said to them is being respected...

I only have one faithful listener. The only one who i can go to and talk, cry, express happiness, love, secrets, all concerns. That one person is my Father, Jahovah.

I would say that my mom is probably the best listener in my life. Obviously because she's my mother she's automatically going to be better at consoling me but she also has an associates degree in psychology and is really open to all thoughts and can help give me positive feedback to help guide me as well.

It has always been my boyfriend whom I can tell all my troubles to.. even when we were still not together and we're just friends.. for the longest time, even if we haven't talked in a long while, if a big problem comes up, the first number I would dial is his.. I remember around 5 years ago, we were no together then, only friends.. I think I haven't talked to him for a couple of months, and then the results of my board exam was released and I failed.. the first number I called was his.. I was crying my heart out, and I know even if I was not talking that he understood me, and that he did not need to say anything, just knowing he is on the other side of the phone is enough for me.

My mother is the best listener in my life. I tell her all my problems in work, in friends, and my love life. She knew everything when I'm sad she cheers me up. We are like best friends. Although sometimes she never give some response to my problem it is important to me there is somebody who understands my feelings.

the best listener in my life is GOD. you don't see him in the flesh, but you know he's there. you can see him in your family, in your friends, just surrounding you, keeping you company day by day. he works subtly, but his works are majestic.

best listeners tend to be mothers who always migth know what is ailing or troubling you. so its better to talk to tham whenever possible and incase the mom is not there vthen you should talk to persons you can confide in.
