You learn a lot about a person when you bear your burdens to them.
Most will relate it to themselves,
a rare few’s stories actually are similar and have a point to them and maybe do help but most don’t at all even when they think they so certainly do.
Were you even listening?
You seemed like such a good friend.
But usually the ones that you least expect it surprise you the most and just listen and tell you what you want to hear when you need to hear it.
People say good friends tell you the truth no matter what, but a true friend knows when to lie or appease you.
It’s interesting to me how the ones that say that they enjoy spending time with you the most are the worst listeners when it comes to your burdens...
That’s when you learn that it really has nothing to do with you, it’s just the way that you make them feel...
I should stop being such a great listener.
Now the more someone says they like me the more wary I get of them.
