Look out

"There comes a time when you have to stop crossing oceans for people who wouldn't step over a puddle for you." — Shut Up I'm Still Talking, Facebook

There's a heavy penalty, evidently, for being a good listener. I swear I'm almost entirely surrounded by sociopathic and/or on-the-autism-spectrum individuals who are a) utterly self-referencing and b) talk about nothing but themselves.

I'm often left (literally) speechless by the number of people in my life who go on and on and on and on about themselves and their lives without it ever (apparently) crossing their minds that I have a self and a life too and maybe, just maybe, it's at least of as much interest to me as theirs is to them.

So be warned, all y'all, my new mantra is contained in the above quote and the below meme.
