When listening to a song, how much does the lyrics matter to you? 🎤🎶

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
The lyrics are half the song. They are important for entertainment value, poetic style, political statements, and more. Let’s look a bit.
Nonsense lyrics yet musical
Slade - Run Runaway
“See chameleon
Lying there in the sun
All thanks to everyone”
WHAT?
Trying to make a point in a humorous style
Ron Gallo - Young Lady, You’re Scaring Me
“Let's get a house, you and me and your 12 cats
We'll put mirrors on the ceiling
We'll have a bunk bed by the bath
You'll line my mattress with nails
One for every time something psycho came out of your mouth
Your cavern eyes are preying
Your scarlet lips half saying
A sales pitch for the circus in your mind
Young lady, you're scaring me”
Using pop to make a deep political statement
The Monkees - Last Train to Clarksville
“Take the last train to Clarksville
And I'll meet you at the station
You can be here by 4:30
'Cause I've made your reservation
Don't be slow
Oh, no, no, no
Oh, no, no, no
And I don't know if I'm ever coming home”
A young man has been drafted into the US military deploying to the Vietnam conflict. He’s saying farewell to his girlfriend with an ominous feeling he will die in combat.
Then we have repetitive pop lyrics which hypnotize the listener to never, ever, ever, ever shake it off.

What is a skill you think more people should have? 🤹 😇

redoasis2017’s Profile Photo★ ☮ ♫ ₜₑₙₐcᵢₒᵤₛ ₜₒₘₘₐy™ ▩ ♚ ☻
To have patience, like when someone is driving a car (a learner) in the neighborhood streets then not honking repeatedly when it's clear they are trying to give them way to go ahead.
Moreover, if someone is driving in the slow zone road like at the speed of 45 kmph or more/less then not honking from behind. They can change the lane,i.e., to fast one and understand that the driver is not experienced yet.
Not over-speeding on the road. Honk before you are planning to overtake a vehicle.
Careful driving at roundabouts.
Other than that, people having the skill to be happy alone. That would make people feel less lonely. But being empathetic at the same time, i.e, not hurting/mocking others. Problem solving skills and being a good listener before you judge anyone.
Maybe some more, idk right now😅
What is a skill you think more people should have

Randomly confession???

I hate being a Doctor at the moment. I don't have the emotional energy to deal with my shitty colleagues, the hospital policies, long, sleepless working hours and the toxic as fuck work environment where a consultant is constantly breathing down my neck. On top of all of this, I am expected to be an excellent communicator and listener for my patients and their attendants. My life has totally been sucked dry by this profession.

Are you more blunt or reserved?

Froyh’s Profile PhotoMerve
I would say that I am generally a reserved person, at least when it comes to expressing my own feelings. I tend to be more of a listener than a talker in most situations, But once I get comfortable around someone and feel like they are trustworthy, I can open up quite a bit. And as for being blunt — well, it depends on the situation. If something needs to be said or addressed directly, then I will do my best to speak honestly and openly about it. But in general, I always try not to hurt anyone's feelings unnecessarily. 🌻

So, I have this thing where I tend to just listen to conversations instead of actually adding to the conversation. I like listening yet I can’t feel it’s awkward for others that I’m not talking. 😅 Any tips or advice?

aiecat_’s Profile PhotoAnonymous
I would suggest trying to speak up more when the topic of the conversation is something you are particularly interested in and know enough about. But, if you find yourself having no desire to add to the conversation whatsoever and usually can’t think of much to say in response, then maybe you’re around the wrong people or those who you aren’t really compatible with. If you do know just what to say but prefer listening instead, that most likely means you’re a good listener and maybe it’s best that you don’t force yourself to speak up if you’d rather prefer listening for the most part and the person that you’re talking to seems to prefer talking more.

How do you spot a fake friend and know when to say goodbye?

They will only speak to you or want to hang out to either dump and moan about the bad in their life, to unload and make themselves feel better. Or want to hang out to do this if you’re a good listener. Or if you’re fun to be around, you get the sense they are using you. Because when their life is going well or they find other outlets (people) you hear nothing and their effort reduces and disappears. Until the next time their life isn’t going so well or the other people didn’t pan out. Their consistent use of people will become apparent. The whole premise of your worth tends to revolve around what they get from you. The moment you retract or can’t give, you don’t hear from them. The value in your deteriorates. And so the cycle begins. You know when to say goodbye is when you notice this pattern and there is no balance in the relationship. Or when you feel it is harming your energy and wellbeing. When their words speak sweetness to your ear, and their actions are fruitless. When effort is not shared. When they deem you speaking of your achievements or things going well to them and they deem it as bragging or showing off. When they don’t root for you when you’re doing well. If you only hear from them when they are sad or when their life isn’t going well, and never when their life is great, then that’s a big indicator.

What makes you a good wife, in your opinion?

I'm a good listener, I love to do things to take care of my spouse, I enjoy going out together and doing fun things together, We talk and joke and cook for each other and care about each other completely

manusia ga akan pernah paham, sampai dia berada disituasi yang sama:)

urbabygirlllll’s Profile Photoなsuki
From my experience I can say, understand deeply that you are not for everyone and they are not always for you.. when you are not included, invited, or considered, whisper to yourself:
"Allah wants this happen to me, Allah Subhana loves me because He put me in this temporary situation, He test me to make me stronger! than before, He cares me more than anything more than anyone, He always listen my du'aa bcz He is the best listener, InsyaAllah this test will pass I can through this, gak ada yg selamanya.. rasa tidak menyenangkan rasa pahit rasa lelah dan rasa sakit akan perlahan memudar seiring gerak maju waktu" 🕖

What qualities do you look for in a friend? 😇

redoasis2017’s Profile Photo★ ☮ ♫ ₜₑₙₐcᵢₒᵤₛ ₜₒₘₘₐy™ ▩ ♚ ☻
A friend who is a listener as well as who like to share their experiences also. Mutual trust and a friendly connection exists like it's fine to tease each other with nicknames🤣 and more. Like, one of my friend usually used to write my name on the class board after the school classes were over and same was done by me😜 we usually would leave the class after all students had left lol🤣 and one day, because of this, the bus was also missed🤦‍♀️🤣 and then they took the bus from other route (:
She would accompany me if I wanted to do something new and then we would laugh together about it. Sometimes, we make get-together plan to visit a new event or watching a movie.
A laughing session happens sometimes with nice friends 😂
Moreover, a friend should be fine with my interests like the movies, studying in free time, my conversation topics🌻

What qualities do you look for in a friend

When someone makes you feel safe. Safe to express. Safe to feel. Safe to speak. Safe to think. Just safe. I love that. I love an emotionally validating human. I love an active listener. I love reciprocity.❤️

I hope we also check in on people like this in our lives. They are also humans who experience stress and can feel drained. <3

Perks of being your friend

I just wanted to share some of the reasons why I think it's great to be friends with me. I'm a loyal and caring person who always tries to be there for my friends, I'm a good listener and I love having deep conversations, and I'm always up for trying new things and having fun. If you're looking for a friend who will support you, make you laugh, and help you make the most of life, I'm your girl!🌻

موضوع للنقاش يا تري ايه أساس اختيارك لشريك حياتك

يكون قريب من ربنا وبيحكم الحلال والحرام ف كل شيء
يكون مسؤول مسؤول مسؤول
بيعرف يعبر عن مشاعره ميحبش الجفا
يكون فاهم ان عاطفتي بتحكمني احيان كتير ويحترم دا ويكون good listener
بيحترم أهله واخواته وقريب منهم

فضلت Good Listener لحد ما نسيت بتكلم إزاي.

بقالي فتره حاسه اني فيا حاجه غلط ،حاسه ان دماغي فاضيه مش عارفه ارد على حد ،الكلام تايه ،لما حد من صحابي بيبقي تعبان مكنتش بسيبه غير بعد ما أخرجه من حزنه ،دلوقتي انا مش قادره أو مش عارفه اعمل ده
حاسه اني عايزه أتكلم و مش عارفه و لا حتي قادره أحدد ده سببه ايه

عايز انزل مع حد فاضي وصامت ومش مهموم يجيبلي دوناتس على حسابه واقعد كام ساعة احاول اشرحله انا زعلانة قد ايه هكون ممتنة جداً

تقريبا انا ف كل الdates الي نزلتها كنت بكون الطرف ال good listener
او يمكن دا بحكم اني طابعي شخص بيحب يفكر كتير وكلامه قليل جدا ف الطبيعه

How to be a great listner?

Whenever someone's talking to them, tell yourself that you're gonna have to make a mental summary of what they told you and repeat it back to them.
It's not an option, you HAVE TO.
Dont make it creepy of course, like don't mention it like you're giving an exam. But just casually repeat to them adding your own comments here and there. For example, if they tell you that they had to take the metro to work that morning and it was exhausting because there was no place to sit. They they go on to tell you how they got into a little argument with someone on the bus and that it ruined their day bla bla.
It's a boring conversation but if you tell yourself that you'd have to summarise this back to them and listen, you can respond back saying something like 'Oh yeah, I know the bus is really busy early mornings and I get how much it must've annoyed you. But it's way cheaper as well, innit?'
You wouldn't have summarised his feelings and added your comment, if you weren't listening to him right?
So listen to always summarise and repeat. This also makes you ver charismatic btw. When you repeat to people what they tell you, it makes them feel heard and we love people taht give us that much imp. This could serve as motivation to become a better listener.

You're everyone's therapist, but who's yours? ✨

I would say that people should try to refrain themselves from giving/taking unsolicited and unprofessional advice. Here random people who love to play online“therapist” which is unethical thing to do.
There is a huge difference in between a good listener and a psychologist. Yes, you can be a good listener but claiming to be a therapist? 🙄

Have you considered going to therapy? (Not calling you a crazy person, I swear! Lol SheeeeeeEeeesh) 🤪😝 Have you ever gone? If so, what was your experience like?

Yes, I’ve gone on and off. There are times when I’ve needed it more than others but it is always good to have a dedicated, non-judging listener. They never (should never) give advice, but they do help you navigate your emotions and decision making. It’s better than just confiding in friends because the therapist is impartial. I prefer same sex therapists because there is more of a common experience, for what it’s worth. Also similar age range is good if possible.

Hi keep posting such good stuff stay blessed dk your name tho Anyways have a good day ahead

There's some serious problem with this generation i mean they're willingly dont wanna listen. These are all brain games. If you think this person gon piss me off no matter whatsoever she/he does even their presence will piss off you.If you tryna understand that no one deliberately want to piss off someone. maybe they just want you to be a listener, then you'd make world somehow a happier place to live .

What do you love most about yourself?

kinzanoor267’s Profile PhotoKinza
Almost everything.
The most important thing is I don’t hurt anyone intentionally.
I love that I repent a lot Alhamdulillah and I think it’s a special quality which I’ve barely seen in people.
I am a very good listener and speaker as well if you talk to me you won’t get bored.
I’d rather stay alone than to engage with someone who I know is bad for me.
I don’t miss red flags lol. I see red first even if it’s green, that’s my consciousness.
I try to be a best person everyday.
And everything I love about myself…

Everyone just keep telling you that you’ll be fine, but no one say that how can you be fine. How this situation go away. Sometimes you don’t have anyone to talk or you don’t want someone to talk with you. Because you know that you can’t find words, you know they’ll think you’re fuckin some psycho…

Never Tell your problems to anyone, No one cares , I repeat NO ONE . fazool k mashwary hi milny Hain bus .
Be your own listener ,
Your own mentor , your own best friend 🌸

How to be a good conversationist?

Have lots of knowledge. Use apps like Ted to learn about new topics. Read books or listen to podcasts. You'd have a lot of to talk about, people will be interested in listening to you.
But then there's one problem, most people these days aren't into intellectual conversations tbh. Like it's usually about social media or other useless stuff, I'd hope you don't want to improve in those topics.
Surround yourself with intellectual people and be a good listener as well.
You can learn a lot by being curious and listening too, asking questions too. It makes other people feel important and makes you more charismatic if you ask questions. So win win for both.

How to get away with suicidal thoughts?? Like how to act when u are stuck in such a crisis

dictator_1059’s Profile Photoexistential crisis
There is no way to escape your thoughts but reaching out always helps.
Talk to anyone let it all out, building up always leads to these kinds of thoughts. Find a good listener even s stranger who listens silently without saying a word. I would suggest to let your heart out in front of Allah after every namaz on daily basis this helps alot and feels like therapy because there are no judgements. Everyone will end up giving you cold stares and will eventually end up judging you to save your self from that just talk to Allah.

Your Top NON-Physical traits that attract you to a potential partner?

Sense of humour is the main one for me but I like men who are not afraid to be themselves, who are not afraid of looking stupid, who are honest/loyal and intelligent. I tend to be a sucker for musician and creative types, passion and dreams are very attractive. I am not always easy to understand so patience, being caring and a good listener are bonuses too :)

What Do You Care About The Most?

ProfeesorAmmar’s Profile PhotoAmmar
I care about everyone around me. Like I can feel the energy when someone's not good. I might not be a good friend but I'm a good listener for sure and even can advice you if you really need it or can motivate you.
But y'know the sad reality? Nobody in this whole freaking world really care about what I feel ! But still like an optimistic person I'm all happy to go to people around me ♥️ they are truly my people no matter what !

Nak sedih nak nangis nak luah tapi takde pendengar. Bukan xnk healing sorang tapi healing sorang takboleh meluah

Sorry sbb baru nmpk shout-out ni 😭 or maybe i already answered this and deleted the post? Anw, I'm so sorry dear (╥﹏╥) i can answer again right?
I can be your listener for a while. I'll listen to u, and I'll try my best to comfort u. But I can't help u to fix the problem u r facing right now, only u can do that. I'm sorry :'(
Do you want to talk ab it? It's okay if u r uncomfortable to talk rn, take ur time. I'll be here for u <3

⠀⠀⠀❪❀❫ ⠀Like a good curious listener, he took into consideration every detail obtained from the female voice. However, his crimson eye fell on that relic in her hands almost instantly. He occasionally exchanged glances noting that he had managed to shake her temper. That looked interesting.
He widened the smile.⠀❝Hua Cheng.❞ he said. A Chinese name with a real reputation to respect... at least, in the ghost/demon realm.
At some point a thoughtful countenance began to appear on him.
⠀❝What would you do if... in front of your eyes, is the cure for that curse of yours?❞ The masculine voice took on a persuasive touch. The silver butterfly soon lay on the disturbed woman's weapon, a clue to what he was referring to.
⠀❝You have someone who, with his death, can bring you peace from all that hell, right here, right now.❞
The man returned a fixed look. He really didn't want to miss her reaction.

هل الفضفضة مريحة ولا بتجيب مشاكل ؟

ع حسب طبيعة الشخص الي بيحكي وطبيعه المستمع
فيه ناس بترتاح لما تحكي وفيه ناس بترجع تندم انها اتكلمت
بالنسبه للمستمع فيه ناس بتبقي good listener ومريحه وفيه ناس عاديه وفيه ناس مبتديش اهتمام وتندم الي قدامها انه حكي
بس الاهم من كل ده اننا نختار الشخص الصح الي نحكيله الي متأكدين انه هيتقبل اي حاجه هتتقال ومش ممكن يستغل حاجه ضدنا ف يوم ايا كان الي هيحصل❤️
