Most of the time, I don’t think that I’m the one whose social skills need fixing. I know enough to know that friendships have a give and take, that it’s not all about one person. I know that conversation itself is an art form, one that some excel at more than others. So why is it that many of my conversations with others seem to involve listening to them talk, and not seeing them attempt to give back? I think that sometimes, people just want to talk at me, and not with me. Show an interest in me people; don’t just tell me your life story, your whole familial and medical background, without bothering to ask anything about me in return!
