There were times in my life when I ran into these people and in the back of my mind said hurry run while you can. It starts with you being kind enough to say to a stranger hello how are you... and before you finish the gates open and a couple hours later this person is still expressing their life's drama to you.
Some people steer clear of interacting with people just for this reason. They have better things to do with their time and would rather not listen to what they deem "negative". However sometimes the best thing you could do for someone is listen. You don't have to help fix their problems or explain to them why they are right. Just allowing them to talk helps people cope with their drama and in the end all that built up pressured stress pours out just the right way with tears, laughter or in some cases screams.
This weekend I found myself listening to strangers who open their curtains and allowed me to see into their souls windows. I have never had a problem with listening, in fact it's a skill that I cherish. What I get out of it I will never know but I will say that taking the time to listen can change someone else's life for the better. If there is one thing we can do to make the world a better place it is to just LISTEN... you could be the light into a broken soul.
