I pride myself on being a good listener, especially since I feel that most people don't listen to what I have to say which makes me feel like they don't truly care.

I feel that is a matter of fact, that some just don’t get. Listen, don’t try to control the narrative. I enjoy your wisdom Brian England

Hi Paul - Active listening is a very important trait.  Letting people know you listened is shown by your response.
