Less Self – Episode #033

It’s hard not to talk about yourself!

I was having a conversation with a close friend recently and we were catching up on old times, you know how that is, “How have you been, how’s work, what’s new?” One of our mutual friends has a photography business and we were discussing how amazing her shots are, as we continued to talk, my first inclination was to say, “HEY, MY WEBSITE IS COMING ALONG”, but then I remember that people get tired of people that always talk about themselves, I know I do!  I have to be cognizant of when I go off my “Bbetter” tangents.  The fact is that it’s something I absolutely love and it’s easy for me to talk about.  We tend to go on and on about the things we love.  I love myself, (as we all should), so it’s very easy for me to use the words, “I, Me, and My.”  I have to be very careful and make sure I’m not hogging the conversation.

It goes back to my post, “Listen More.”  God gave us two ears and one mouth for a reason.  In my profession, I spend most of my day listening to the problems of others, so you can see where I struggle with having an outlet. Venting is therapy, just make sure your relationships are 2 way streets and not strictly your way, one way.
