Listening and connecting with others is a way of life.
There’s a fine line though with “performing”
Performing is great for movies and acting – entertainment.
Telling stories about our past to others – it could be beneficial , pulling lessons and mistakes out.
It could also be boring, annoying, and self absorbed.
Maybe it makes us feel good to dominate the convo and make it all about us, but what about those listening?
Are they really enjoying stories about our high school football career or the amount of women we slept with or the parties we threw or how bad we were?
Let’s live in what’s present
Listening and connecting with people
Not performing for them…
Unless of course, we’re acting.
