CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE IS A SKILL
EARNED GROWING UP

That's not a typo. I "EARNED" this skill.

When I was a kid I grew up in an unusual surrounding. My mother ran a “Board and Care Home” for people who were Manic Depressants, Schizophrenics and elderly. The “Business” was on the same property as the home I grew up in and so in many ways these people my mom cared for daily were my friends. I learned a lot about people at a very young age. I also learned that I was different because I would occasionally hear people say I loved at the “Crazy House” What I found interesting was how average these people were when they were taking their medication. Average as anyone and had average conversations about average interests. When they didn’t take their medications they did NON average things like talk out loud to no one, get into arguments with trees and occasionally strip naked and stand out in front of the house.

Sharing this on my Blog makes me suddenly imagine how odd that must be to you who are reading this. To me it was so normal and average. 

What I really learned was how to listen to people. Understanding that deep down we all create very similar things but go about getting them in completely unique ways. 

EVERYTHING is based on their perspective. How they view the world, how they view themselves and how they view the future. 

Once day I finally realized that I could actually be of value to people because I had become very skilled in being able to ask the right questions to get the right info to be able to see how they think. Once I learned how people think then I was really able to help. 

onestly, I couldn't have the cure for everything that really holds people back from who they want to be and it won't matter at all if I don't get skilled at being able to communicate it.
