Q I’m a listener. Friends, family, everyone tells me their troubles. People I meet for the first time pour out their life’s story. But no one listens to me. If I have an opinion or talk about myself, they yak right over me. It upsets me that I let myself be ignored. What can I do?
I hear you. First, congratulate yourself for being a person others feel they can trust. It’s a rare gift. Be proud of it. Now add a second skill: Lure a listener with a question. Try this: “Can you keep a secret?” Or: “Can I trust you with a bit of my own personal story?” Make your listener feel important and you’ve got him hooked!
