Trojan Horse.

bitch - rambflection

M called me and said she needed to talk about N. We sat down and had a long conversation. The more I talk to people, the more three things become obvious to me. One, is that, regardless of how attractive, smart and awesome you are, one always has relationship issues. Everybody seems perfect, till you peek at their emotional side. There are always worms in that can. Always. Even mine.

Two, is that sometimes all people need is someone to talk to. At least most of the people I talk to are awesome and know exactly what to do. They don’t want anyone to tell them what to do. All they want is someone who’ll listen to their stories. The only problem is that not anyone will do. Me. I have very low standards. I’d talk to a dog if the bark came to bite.

Ironically, M did ask me what I she should do. I told her that I couldn’t tell her what to do, but from my experience, if you have to ask a third person for relationship advice, that’s probably not a good sign.

And third.. what’s the third one there. I forget. Oops.

    Hello. Gotta disagree with you on one thing there, boss. There’s a reason most of us prefer talking to people over talking to dogs (with the occasional lonely exception, of course), and that reason most likely has to do with the fact that other people pay attention and respond, so we can learn from them instead of steeping in the stew of our own limited experiences. Listening and giving your thoughts is not the same as dishing out unwanted advice. Hence, I comment on your blog, even though it’s more a venue for your own ideas than for anyone else’s opinions. πŸ˜‰

      I agree. That was me just just shamelessly plugging my own post πŸ™‚ I’m quite proud of that one so needed to have a trackback ping to it πŸ˜›
      Why do you think I talk to you all the time? I told you, you’re one of my role models.

        You’re right: it was a very good post. Daisy would be proud of it, if she could read.
        Dunno why you talk to me all the time (assuming I am who you think I am). Will add all this to my pile of data and get back to you eventually!
