So Guess Who Was Waiting For Some Snacks When I Got Home! (Excuse The Shedding)🤔
What is listening? Is it thinking of what you can say next before the person even finishes their sentence? Is it nodding yes and no, as insight passes through one ear and out the other? Is it filling the awkward silence with the next jumbled off topic comment you can blurt out next? Is it taking everything the person is saying and comparing it to your own life instances?
Or is it dropping the words from the conversation and actually feeling what someone is saying?
Listening. Listening takes practice. See listening is an area I used to lack in and still do. I forget to ground myself in the moment and not only understand the words but also to feel the emotion behind them. I tend to block out all emotion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve always been good at pretending to listen. Yeah, I can look you in the eyes, I can nod yes. But don’t ever think for one second I let my guard down, or allowed anyone to see into my soul. Those of you that know me have seen how hard I fight this (my right eye twitches). For some reason I just always listened to the words, I fought whatever emotion was behind them. I literally never let anyone in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So lately I’ve been letting people in. Letting them into what I feel, has been overwhelming to say the least. There’s always been times when I’m actually listening or speaking and getting goosebumps repeatedly (idk why but it just happens). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I guess the moral of this insight is to remind myself to trust in others. Be myself, and not block off the rest of the world. Let people in especially when the outside world knocks so often. Just relax and breathe, don’t fight it.
This is the progression of my female rescued bearded dragon Daisy
We rescued her from Petco where she was for adoption due to having a missing tail and a broken toe. She was extremely stunted, skinny, and vet dehydrated. Her recovery took a while but with some neosporin treatment her tail scan fell and with an improved dubia roach and collars greens diet as well as natural sunlight everyday, she is as healthy as can be!
