So many times i realize that when it is obvious that someone doesn't want to listen to what i have to say I have to catch myself before I am doing the same thing back at them. The last few years i have been entertaining myself by playing the student when someone is blasting me with their rhetoric. Except for magical thinking. I gave all the tolerance for it i was born with away in my early youth. I can almost point to the month and year that i last entertained an attempt to lure me down that rabbit hole.I’d rather talk to people who are interested in listening. I get much more out of that.
