A Random Quote That I Love

I really love this quote, as you can probably tell. Listening is something that I think people overlook and forget sometimes, which sounds crazy because we're almost always listening to something. It's something that we're so used to, we forget it's importance. 

There have been a lot of times when I've gotten frustrated because I wasn't being listened to, and times when people have gotten frustrated with me because I wasn't really listening to them.

I'm the type of person who, during a conversation, will remember an event or a funny story and then let myself focus on whatever it is that I've remembered instead of what the other person is saying. Quite often, it turns into a "Once they stop, I'll tell them this thing that I've remembered and they'll think it's great too!", which typically isn't the case. 

While listening to others, I've found that everyone knows things that I don't. Which means that I can learn something new from everyone! All I have to do is listen. It's also important to remember that I know things others don't, so it's important for me to remember that what I have to say is equally as valuable.
