Ears To Change

QCCYou rudely dominate every conversation you’re in. You’re always spouting opinions and “facts” pulled straight from your ass. And on the (frequent) occasions you know so little about a topic even you can’t fake expertise? You fall back on the one thing you can always talk about: you. Unfortunately for everyone, you’re BORING.

Here’s some advice: shut up. It’s easy! When others are talking, just hold your lips together and breathe through your nose (You won’t suffocate! I promise). And while you’re doing that, actually listen to the opinions, knowledge, experiences, hopes, fears and dreams of someone you don’t see in the mirror every morning.

Make a habit of listening, and who knows — you might eventually become interesting yourself! And  I won’t have to make excuses to get away from you and your big, stupid mouth. /Anonymous
