Do you ever feel like you are not truly being heard. For me, Yes! Their are moments when we are speaking to someone and you start to realize this person is not really interested in what you have to say. I have one person in my life that when I speak to them, they are usually either staring at their phones or watching TV. In these moments, they are half listening to what I have to say or rushing me to finish what I am saying. Though this same person, when I am speaking to someone else they usually are listening in and then later on will comment or say something. It always makes me feel very uncomfortable. I feel like I am not being heard. For a while I would just let this happen but now I am standing up for myself. I will ask the person if they are listening to me and ignore them if they comment when I am talking to someone else. I believe that if you are having a conversation with someone they should be fully listening to you. They should not only get involved in your life if they only care about something they find interesting in your life. Yes, this can be friends but it’s harder when its family members. It could be a sibling or your parents. Its hard but you must stand up for yourself and now your worth. You should be heard and respected. I are important.
What would you do if someone was half listening to you? What advise would you give?
