Speaking is a very good thing to do. I speak to people every day, and if they don't speak to me I still speak to them. So those who don't speak to others should start speaking now!

Getting to know you: All about you:
by: maurice

Stacey sure if we did not bother to say Hi, hello, How are you? etc we would never get to know the mind and heart of the other or them me or us: Thank you: I am an extrovert by nature so I speak and mix alot with people: It is getting more difficult by the day though: people don't want to let you into their world: For what ever reason: So I have to be conscious of when and who I say hello to, in order to start a conversation: I am very respectful of each person I converse with for the first time. Letting them tell me about themselves while not asking too many questions: I would say it takes me much longer than you to get to know someone: We are all so special and unique: Stay safe: Be safe: Only by speaking of my abuse to another can I make them more aware of what abuse is all about and it's effects on me and others: Again speaking to people about Darlene's site creates interest and concern: It is a learning site especially when one knows each story is vetted and made safe by Darlene to let on her safe haven for people to begin to indirectly speak to another about their own personal abuse: How right you are: I still don't know anything about you except you are a talker: good on you Stacey:
