Here's What Other People Won't Tell You About Telling Someone Else Your Truths

Something I've been pondering for a little while now and I want to share it with you guys to get your thoughts on it.

It centers around "Truth-Telling".

Soooo many people today want to tell you what their "Truth" is...

They want you to know what they stand for, what they believe in, what causes they champion, how to save the world.

They want your undivided attention while they tell you these things.

They want you to be fired up and join their causes and rally with them to fight the evils of this world. 

Of the man holding them down. 

The oppressive government.

Their mental illness.

The race war.

Their oppressed life.

The battle of the sexes.

Big business holding us all down.

Big brother watching everything you do and everyone who is doing it.

The corrupt legal and police.

The evil military and world policing.

And, the list goes on and on...

But, the funny thing is that as soon as they finish telling you their truth, they are done with you and they move on to the next sorry person who has to listen to their diatribe.

They don't care about your "Truth".

All they care about is theirs.

I'm sure everyone reading this message right now loves to have one-sided conversations with people, family, friends, etc...

Isn't it sad that all that is important to most people today is themselves?

Isn't it sad that all that matters to most people today is the things they want or believe in?

Isn't it sad when you figure out you don't really matter to them at all unless you give them your time to listen to them?

What a jacked up way to treat your friends and family (or really anyone who listens to you).

A conversation my friends is supposed to go two ways by design. 

Not just one way.

Leave the one-way streets for driving around your nearest city.

That's no way to have a conversation or to even really talk to someone. 

And yeah I know right now a bunch of people are thinking to themselves...

Yeah, well they made a choice to sit there and listen to me. They didn't have to if they didn't want to and when they start to talk I choose to move on. There isn't anything wrong with that.

True, they did.

Back in the old days, we used to call that being polite.

Don't ever take someone politeness to mean you can treat them badly.

Because when a polite person decides to stop being polite, believe me, you will wish 9 out of 10 times that they were still being polite to you.

People are usually polite to someone out of respect for them.

If they were once polite to you and now they aren't anymore... You're welcome for what you've done.

People don't owe you anything.

Especially their time.

Time is more precious than almost anything else on this planet.

Once we spend it on someone or something it's gone. We can't get it back.

So for all of you people out there who want to share your "Truth" with someone else...

Please be willing to also hear the other's person "Truths" and give them the same time, attention, and respect they gave you by listening to your truths.

Otherwise do us all a favor and just keep your "Truths" to yourself, because no one has time for a one-way disrespectful conversation with you.
