Got to be able to reset yourself. Surrender to the moment, accept what is and simply move forward in a neutral manner.
You realise someone can hear you, someone takes offense, someone disagrees. You have to get a feel for the fact that time goes on. Die a little inside and remember that the continuity of now is infallible.
I like feeling socially destroyed. I step carefully and nearly every step of everything I say is from a place of tact. When someone changes the subject, disagrees. I like to stop and go with it. Forget what I’m holding onto. Let go.
I prefer to draw people out. Talk about their favourite subjects. Them and their lives. I find the gaps inbetween what’s being said for a quip or a retort, a short story or an idea. Like to give people time to be heard so they don’t feel the need to let it all out quickly. Enjoying a conversation’s all about pacing.
Like to ask open-ended questions or questions that inspire deeper thought. Still, I can’t refrain from being sarcastic. My own brand of cheap, innocuous humour.
Like to think I can get along with any personality type, though that doesn’t always work out. Seem to clash with a specific type of person. People with anger and ill-thought. Laugh if they died. Though always try and be polite to people. It’s an easier life, that way. Simpler.
