I've always been a talker. I been talking since I started. I'll talk to anyone. The problem with talking to everyone is that there are too many people out there who want to talk to anyone and not a single person will talk to them. Beyond that, if I have a conversation with anyone, I'm ready to keep talking to that person often. I want to know what makes people tick. These conversations often let me in on information that ain't to fun. That's a sort of obvious one I guess. Well, in the end I've spent so much time talking and not any time with any focus. I just talk and talk and talk. You get the picture.
In linguistics class I learned that guys talk more than girls. Most people were shocked. I wadn't at all. I knew it. I had a very long conversation with my co-worker about life the other day. He's just about the only person who freely shares the true good and bad openly with me at work. I'm glad that they ain't a ton more. It's not easy to give good advice. I give him the best advice I could, but I still felt as if I was being above the situation. I told him what I thought about the situation and then said, "Yep!" The advice was based on what I thought God wanted him to do and the advice was clear. He got it! The amazing thing is that I think that I got more out of his problem than he did. I guess I should have said that I got more out of the solution.
