"Gift of the gab"? Gifts don't always match outcomes of working

Updated: Feb 11

Did you realise, that people who never seem to stop talking, don't necessarily have some kind of "gift" of the gab, and therefore, something that gets bestowed on some people but not others? Instead, some people have suffered the most profound periods of loneliness, and they eventually take action. Through painful trial and error, they become communicators, but absolutely not egotistical ones, who might more likely, attract sycophants. Instead, if you choose to talk to this other type, they are discernible by your own feelings of comfort and social solidarity. That's in a large part down to an avoidance of competition, and/or boastfulness. It's not rocket science. They know those two negatives and others, are unattractive.
