All of it
Any listening involving
Empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard
Is grist to the mill.
In other words
Can be used as evidence in my portfolio
In which I learn
That when someone is on a metaphorical sinking boat
Going round and around
About to go
Down the plug hole...
I jump on board and go with them.
Why people don't wish to listen to other people's problems.
Normally I'm fairly bomb proof.
Normally I don't get on board
Problem solving mode clicks on.
But that isn't what I'm supposed to be doing
No problem solving
No swimming back to shore shouting across the oily waters
"Just jump!!! "
Expecting other people to jump
Makes sense to me.
If something doesn't fit
It something is wrong
Something so crazy, so messed up, but the mad ones are trying to get you to join in, making it sound great, noble and even a little bit fun. Bad things happen when people can't problem solve in creative ways
Or run or say no...
Mad situations should be left to sink
So why was I on the boat of madness going down?
