As i was having my bath this morning,something crossed my mind; I listen way much more than i talk with most people i know.The reason is not that i don't know what to say or am secretive or i hate talking (i don't love it much sha),but the main reason is that most of the people i come in contact with would rather hear themselves talk rather than hear some other person talk.Some people are worse than FM stations,i mean FM stations go on break to take commercials but these people don't.They talk and talk and talk and talk not minding whether you're following or not.Some of them talk so much so that you sleep and leave them to their talking.There is nothing wrong with talking,don't get me wrong,but there is everything wrong with it when it isn't timed.Just like everything else,talking has its time and outside that time,it is very detrimental in various aspects.
The kind of people that talk alot are always prone to saying things they ought not to say.They are mostly bad at keeping secrets.This is because lots of times they say all they have to say and to keep their 'talking' going,they digress into telling peoples' secrets.So if you have a secret,do yourself a favor and don't ever make the mistake of telling it to someone who talks alot.Also,these talkative kind of people mostly lack wisdom.There's this saying (i was almost calling it popular but it isn't so popular); "a foolish man is considered wise when he's silent".There's also another saying i love "It is better to keep quiet and be considered a fool than to speak and confirm it".It has always been a known fact that people who talk less and listen more are always people with wisdom.The reason this is that you learn more when you listen than when you talk.Again,they are mostly chronic gossips.When they talk and talk and talk and run out of things to say,they dive into peoples' lives and say trash.Also,these kind of people rarely know their friends.The reason is because they spend most of their time talking rather than listening.So while with their friends,they don't pay attention to their friends but to themselves.
These i-love-to-hear-myself-talk kind of people lack wisdom and so they don't realize that just as they have things they like or want to talk about,the people they come across with also have things they want to share.You have problems,you have fears,you have dreams,you have hopes,you have passions,you have love and so on,what gives you the impression other people don't? Oh oh i get it,they are stones without feelings,right? People that talk too much don't interest me and the people who are very close to me are people who don't talk more than they listen.Have a nice day people!
