I was raised to not interrupt people. This has served me well most of my life. There is the occasional time it is absolutely necessary to interrupt in a heated debate. Rarely do I do it. I have many people in my life that were raised with a different set of values on this topic. There are people I love dearly that are either too distracted by things they have to take care of or those that are just distracted by the thoughts in their head that seem to not notice when I'm talking. They just start talking like they didn't know there were words coming out of my mouth. I use to be really offended or hurt by this. Not anymore, I realize it is just their set of values and I am OK with them they way they are. Besides all of that, I may be one of those people and not realize it.
However, there are those times that I really just want to tell a story or have an opinion heard on something. These are the times that this situation is the most difficult for me. I will be mid-thought in a conversation I am having with someone, when they will start talking while I'm talking. This tends to frustrate me.
Blogging has become the place I can finish some of those thoughts. The best part about it......If you are tired of hearing me ramble.......You can navigate your browser to somebody else and I get to finish my thought. See, it's win/win for everybody.
