Story Place - what a great idea!
People don’t really listen to what you have to say - everyone has their own story and they want to tell theirs.
So, you start saying something and soon a phone rings, someone walks by or whatever and before you know it, you’re on a different topic. How often have I started telling someone or a group something and you see their attention going elsewhere and you start speaking softer or stop speaking and no one even notices. I was in numerous conversations where someone interrupted a person and you have to make a concerted effort to say “you were saying...” for that person to finish the story.
All these sometimes “unawareness” of being rude behavior, makes me concentrate more on what people are saying. Some just stop sharing and I think it’s quite sad. People feel unimportant and when it is really necessary to share something for mental health reasons, they just don’t do it.
Thank you for this platform.
