Talking instead of listening

WOW!  I learned more about myself today.  #1 I have known for a long time that I talk more when I’m nervous… a lot more.  Today while having lunch with a friend I noticed that each time she brought up a stressful situation that she is going through, I jumped in “talking” thinking that I am being supportive.  This wonderful woman is one of the most competent and wise people I know.  She doesn’t need me to “fix” anything or give her my opinions or solutions.

To tell you the truth, I know better than to do this.  I just seem to suck at conversations.

Well, I plan to change that.  My friends and family will just have to accept the quieter me.
