Talking Too Much

I recently learned something about myself. Or maybe I knew it all along. What I learned is that I don’t like to be around people who talk too much. I don’t mind being around people who talk a moderate amount, or even people who talk a lot, but it’s talking too much that I don’t enjoy. I realized it places a burden on me – the burden to have to listen to all that talking. I have always tried to be a good listener, and I think I’m pretty good at it, but there’s a limit to how much and how long I can sit and listen. I hope this doesn’t sound mean, but I just needed to say it.

It doesn't sound mean. There are certain people that I find in my life like what you've described.

I'm with you. At least give me a little back and forth to make it interesting...

I am usually like that; however I have a daughter who talks to much but I just let her talk and as I listen I learn unspoken things.
