Deep Talks


This is one of my favorite activities in the world. I’ve been told I’m a really good listener and I tend to agree with the people who tell me that. To have someone you can just spill beans to whenever and know it won’t leave the room (whatever room it might be, physical, digital, etc.) is something special.

I am able to select 2 or 3 people I can spill my beans to. I’m appreciative of that. If you’re a frequent reader of this blog, you know my brain has some issues to iron out. It’s always good to bounce my frustrations out with someone and they can either relate to it or find some way to get me out of my current funk. As serious as they get, it has funny moments as well. It’s mainly because I get the opportunity to use my memory and talk about some great moments of the past. Even the specific details no one would remember.

As much as I pride myself in being a good listener, sometimes I wish people would abuse that quality of mine more. I know talking to someone about the things that trouble you require a great deal of trust between you and the person you’re talking to. It’s hard to come forward to someone you vaguely know. So to those who know me, let me listen! If all you want me to do is absorb your words, I’ll do it. I don’t have to say anything. Giving advice is not required in this type of talk, but I will say, deep talks are great when they go two ways.

Let’s figure out our problems together. We’re all friends here.
