Say it once again now, whoa I hope you understand - Playin' in the Band

Asked a question, I will answer it honestly. Ask me again, same answer. I can't, won't change my answer to suit you. Want a different answer, go to someone else. Actually, I would prefer that. It's painful to see your frustration. The question, the answer, the frustration. And on and on it goes. Perhaps a different question would change the outcome. That's doubtful. Stop asking. I don't want to answer. I want you to learn to hear.

I love this quality in people, even if it results in hurt feelings at times. If a person won't tell me something I don't want to hear, or don't agree with, how can I trust the other stuff they say?

Bravo, my friend. Far too many people in the world live in the lies told to them by others.

Love that - and agree with it. I'll echo Janet and say "AMEN!"

Yep, that's just starting down the slippery slope to believing what you're saying, and buying into someone else's head trip about life. As far as I know for sure, we've only each got one life, and it's tragic to spend it placating someone else, or worse, trying to be someone else.

Peace,

Tor

Listening is one of the most difficult tasks to do. I mean, to actually listen. I once read a book called, The Art of Listening. It was very informative & in all my years (47) I've met 2 people who were listeners.
