    What will you do when nobody listens to you?

    There are times we feel insecure and embarrass when we are talking yet nobody bothers to listen. have you experienced the same way to? If you do, how you managed that situation?

    Its true that we all face such situations in life. Some times not just friends but our own family members refuse to co-operate and listen to us. First thing that we should do is not to react. Not to feel low, depressed or angry, but to think, what is it  that's making other person behave like that. Why nobody is listening? May be they do not understand you. May be they think you are a fake. May be they think you are foolish and dumb and gullible, may be think you want something from them, or may be they do not know you. Tell them about some thing they do not know, some thing that only you can see, confront them with their preconceived notions, their assumptions and their baseless opinions. Of course it requires you to be good judge of human nature and different human conditions. If you can not tell them any thing worth while and make them listen to you then better go out and get some fresh air. Go for a long walk or read a book and if possible think why things happen the way they happen. Perhaps you will learn something about yourself and also about other. Then you would be in a better position to handle such situation.

    Yep, happens sometimes and when it does I simply stop talking. Noone is listening so no point opening my mouths.
    If it's with friends they usually come back after few minutes, apologize for interrupting and ask me to say it again - it happens to all of us that we have a sudden thought and need to interrupt before it goes away.
    When it happens in other situations I revert to listening mode - probably people are not there for listening others but to tell their stories. They want to be heard more than anything else or simply come up as witty, funny or the most talktative - must be they need a boost in self-esteem smile

    When I am highly depressed, I use to stand before full length mirror and talk to myself. It really relieves me a lot. I tell everything that comes in my mind and can see my reactions as well in the mirror.
