People who do not listen


Anybody else deal with thick-headed people? For example I've been saying the same thing since about 2016 now and these people will still not leave me alone. And what is infuriating is all it would take is one person to be honest. Learning disability would be a severe understatement at this point. Anybody else deal with people who do not listen?

I deal with people who tries to make look like l don't understand what I'm doing, and telling me that I don't understand to confuse my intentions or lose track of my own response.

Is it healthy to always encounter such behavior from people all the time?

Honestly it's sad but I'm surprised when people remember things I've said. Many times I've been speaking to people and they forget stuff later.

My mum is really bad at listening it annoys my brother but I don't really talk to her about much these days. He also tries to talk to her about his interests sometimes which I try to avoid with people irl unless it's my brother. When I had some slightly more normal ones I would sometimes when I was younger with family members, but tried not to go into stuff too much because people find that annoying. Now I do that on this forum instead.

I feel like you're talking about people who do listen and just dismiss your advice or something though which is a separate thing. Like my mum is actually terrible at listening sometimes she'll just pretend she heard what my brother was saying and I've witnessed this happen multiple times, but she didn't and she's just answered something else entirely.

Some people heard my words and thought it meant they knew me
Truth is, I don't exist, I'm just a soundtrack to your movie
Some background figure in a story that's already scripted
And what I feel's just felt for you to hear me ****ing spit it
I jump in many different heads through these words and poems
Always hoping maybe the next leap'll be my leap home

literally. every. office. ever. Also happens when scammers try to scare you by sounding litigious. It's the way of the world :\

It's kind of like trying to opt out of ads on google. It almost feels like you'll get locked up just for saying "wait a minute you slimey business con artist, I DO NOT consent to this!"

Oh I see, yeah people will often do the opposite of what you request.

Sounds like it's people who refuse to take "no" for an answer, and constantly disrespect your personal boundaries. I've had many people like that in my life, because I'm timid, and have a hard time being assertive. I think this is probably a common problem among people with social anxiety. Plus a lot of people are super passive-aggressive and will go out of their way to do something if they know it makes you uncomfortable. Basically, people suck.

I had an opinion about cities but I'm getting this tickling feeling in the back of my mind that I don't know what I'm talking about anymore.

Some people think they are always right. Can't change them. Got to change our behavior toward the situation. Stubborn people is one of the reasons why people get disinterested in interacting with a certain person. They need to see a change in behavior from yur part, IMO. That shocks people when your attitude changes because it's always the same ending with them.

The thing is, I've tried that too. And I'm sorry but a former boss literally reprimanding me just for who I hang out with or going to progressive events is crossing the line. I have a right to a personal life, it's not my fault they wanna be psychos.
