Throughout my adult life as an active listener I am aware of people who only love to talk about themselves and what is happening with them. Sometimes they don't even ask how you are, or let you get a word in the conversation (if you could call it that).
In conversations we must learn to maintain ourselves so that when someone has a point to make, we don't just rush in with a story that relates to our lives. This is selfish of us all, trying to get our experience in as quick as possible, and we should all try to respectful of others and really listen to them
Let's listen people!
