Thursday, November 9

I find that I talk about myself too much.

I've become wrapped up in the way my mind
ticks (which may or may not be self-centred).
Always talking about myself, the centre
of attention in my words but mind,
I am trying to find a ground common
to the people I know, and to think
of finding some connection; think
that we may find not only a language in common
but maybe I'll find I'm not so different
from the people I don't understand.
It's difficult to try and take right meaning
when heart and mind proclaim their difference
(and heaven knows I don't understand).
Oh, how do my words disguise my meaning . . .

The thing about talking about yourself is to first know why you're doing it. It might be that you are simply a proud idiot who likes boasting about yourself, or it might be that you are nervous and feel you can't relate to the people around you. Or it might be something else entirely.

The important thing here is to remain humble. It might be better to be silent. If you find yourself monologue-ing you might try the following:

(1) Listen to what the other person/people is/are saying.

(2) Choose one thing to ask a question about (this takes some practice if you are a nervous type).

(3) Ask the question, if you have to. It is much much better to be a listener than a speaker in most social situations.

People may complain if you are the quiet type, but better that than the alternative. I know this. Trust me.

I am still working on this. Film at 11.
