The problem with the world today...

Only today...

Is that everyone likes to talk. We talk too much. We talk when we're in front of the TV, we talk when we're sitting at the dinner table, we talk when we're working, we talk when we're studying, we just can't seem to stop talking.

With so much talking going on, who's gonna listen?

As human beings, we strive to be listened to, but if everyone wants to talk, then there's evidently no one that's gonna be listening. People ask you out for dinner not because they want to have dinner with you, they have something to tell you. When colleagues come to your cubicle, they want to tell you something.

The tactics are always the same tried and tested - "So, tell me..." And when you come up with ONE remark, they will inevitably cut you short and tell you the entirity of their minds.

That's why more and more blogs are out there. People just want to rant, spread their ideology, and think that they are smart. (Hmmm.... sounds like i'm describing myself... AND THE REST OF YOU OUT THERE!!!) Nowadays, people don't care if anyone reads their blog, they just want to BLOG/say something/spread their thoughts!

So... Be a listener today. Talk less, listen more, and you'll find that there's a whole lot of things in this world that you've misunderstood.

The more you listen, the more you know,
The more you know, the more you'll understand,
The more you understand, the less you know,
The less you know, the more you need to listen.

hhhmmm....

I've been profoundly profound these past few days...
