Listen To What Others Say

Tuesday, March 07, 2017

Today was an interesting day. Hubby and I are buying a new house. We needed to drop off a few papers at the banker's office. I was sure that this would be a short visit. I like people. I like listening to others. As my banker started talking, he discussed his weight battle. I would estimate his weight exceeds 400 pounds. He said that he had always been a chubby boy. After a divorce and other issues, including bad health, his weight rose. He discussed the fact that he had discovered an interesting diet, through a friend that is a nurse. It is the Zen Diet. He has lost 26 pounds in the last month. I do not know much about it but have read on the internet, after our visit. He actually opened up about his life, the death of his mother - he actually cried. This is a man that I had never met, just had a couple of conversations on the phone. We were actually at this office for an hour and a half. I find that often we are led to people for various reasons. Today I believe I was just the person that he needed to speak with just to bear some of his pain and struggles.
