I am talking about people trying to get one up the other no matter what the occasion is, you start talking about your illness and suddenly it becomes a competition so as to who has had the biggest illnesses in their family, you talk about something that you have bought and the other talks about something bigger and better that his aunt's neighbor's daughter has bought.You talk about your relationship troubles and the other start talking about how difficult it is and how she/he wisely(much more wisely than you) deals with such problems.
All the above are real life examples that I have encountered or observed(I am a notorious eavesdropper)
Everything in life is not a competition and sometimes we can listen to others with out making it all about ourselves.
Now since I myself am a self confessed chatter box, you people must be thinking look who's talking(eye roll) but I am a good listener guys seriously swear on my favorite LBD
I know that sometimes we exhibit the above to empathize but don't just start blabbing about yourself when the other person is looking for somebody who can listen to her/him.
Do I sound totally preachy ??? I don't intend to but if I do bear it this time :)
I wanted to talk about it cause most of the people are guilty of this offence despite good intentions
I have also done it many times till the time I realized what I was doing and now try really hard not to talk about myself too much and listen to others.
Of course sometimes you totally can talk about yourself, gloat, blabber and just say what you want to say :) (what are husbands for)
Now on to a warning I want to give: Watch "Anjana Anjani" at your own peril the movie is not at all how it looks like in the trailers . It is preachy, boring and sad(was very surprised) with intermittent bouts of humor which we have already seen in the trailers being aired. And Priyanka wears bad clothes so there was nothing in it for me :(
Lets look at the pics now , both clicked by my friend D
Bracelets: Accessorize and Forever New
I wore this on an extremely hot day here in Mumbai to run errands which had to be done in the mall :) I wanted to feel comfy and cool hence, no accessories.
Thanks everyone for the comments on the last post I really love and value your comments.
