I just cried as I hung up the phone because I realized no one ever listens to me. At work my manager brushes off my comments as though words were never said, makes me feel like my viewpoints don’t matter, like I’m filling a convenience shell. When I talk to you it’s in one ear and out the other, you act frustrated when all I want to do is speak. Am I so much of an inconvenience to you that when all I want you to do is fucking listen to me, the only thing you can do is turn the other cheek? I’ve never felt so stuck and hopeless. I’m terrified human nature may prevent me from finding someone genuinely willing to listen.
