And I've pretty much found this to be true. I like listening to people talk. I like seeing the light in someone's eyes when they really care about something. I like talking too, don't get me wrong, but nothing beats watching the eyes of people when they speak. In that silence, if you really listen instead of planning what to say next (pet peeve), you can hear so very much more than what they say. ~ Lauren M. I couldn't have said it better myself
Walk away and watch out: a person who gossips to you has more than likely already, (or will soon be) tearing you down as well!!! I want nothing to do with the ones who aim to tear others down or the ones ignorant enough to listen.
"Think before you speak. Listen intently. Be patient. Be kind. Respect, value, and protect life. Maintain awareness of what pushes your emotional impulse buttons. Think about the consequences of your actions before you act. Being your best creates your best life. Creating your best life allows you to be an example for others of how life works best." - Namaste, Regina
