6 Signs You or Someone You Know is Boring to Be Around

Maybe at one time you were interesting.  People enjoyed being around you.  But these days life responsibilities have been getting the best of you.  You may think that you are still fun and interesting, but upon closer inspection of your life, maybe not.  How do you know you have grown into a boring person?

One.  When anyone ever talks to you about something you keep bringing up the same subject matter about things like ie.) kids, jobs, etc.  Your conversation rarely changes.

Two.  You don't talk with enthusiasm, a sense of happiness, or seem like you even enjoy living.

Three.  You visit the same places in your free time and you don't bother to go elsewhere for any number of reasons like: it's just easier, cheaper, or a shorter distance from a job.  Therefore, if you don't go anywhere, but the same spots all the time, you don't have nothing new to really say and you limit your life experience.

Four.  People tell you things like, "You are boring...Do you get out much?"  They don't bother to call invite you anywhere or visit you.

Five.  Loved ones don't hear from you or see you much even your intimate relationship is declining because you don't bother to take any personal or vacation days to do anything fun or different. You rarely look outside yourself and your routines.

Six.  You don't act interested in what others have to say, and you don't look for opportunities to relate to others in ways that make them want to enjoy your company.

As you ponder these points, think about other things you might not say or do that make people feel like you are a bore.  Spice your personal and professional life up a bit by changing the way you do things, checking in with your significant and children to find out what their needs might be, and take a look around your personal dwelling, neighborhood and elsewhere for problems that you might be able to solve.  Being helpful and encouraging toward a variety of people (outside of your job), and reflecting on who you are and your purpose for living are just a few things that will help you toward getting out of your boring slump.  Write a list of things that you would like to do and share with your loved ones.  Set a date and time and do what you promised yourself and others.

Bored? Start Researching about Others' Experiences Outside of America

We are spoiled in this country.  We have more than most in other lands.  Many in America have televisions, a portable phone, running water, lights, gas, a warm place to stay, etc. 

Try going outside of America and what might you find in the slums, the country, or on a land surrounded by water?  Not as much as we have nor are the buildings as nice as ours.  You might have some amenities from home in some places overseas, but most likely something will be amiss, and you will just have to tolerate doing without it.  From a buzzing fly with no spray to kill it to a hole in the wall with nothing to fill it, that's life outside of your four walls with a bed and whatever else you appreciate the most in your room.  Sure, it may not be a palace, but it's your home, "so be grateful," I was once told by former military officers.

So your bored right?  Tired of looking at the same old stuff on the Internet.  Why not check out some of those YouTube videos of foreigners?  Then go off to some blog sites or forums where Americans as well as non-Americans post their personal experiences.  Now that will be a mind and an eye-opener for many of you reading this, because chances are you haven't been out your neighborhood much lately.  Wonder what someone is dealing with about your age, gender and ethnicity in say a place like Japan, Brazil, or Sweden?  What sort of challenges are they dealing with in the Middle East outside of what you think you might know from slanted American media reports?  What is dating, parenting, and business like outside of the United States for others around the world?  Try getting some answers to these questions and more. 

Shall we broaden our horizons?  Utilize boring times to create your own lesson plan on learning--no matter what the age, social class, or location!

Make Your New Year Interesting, Exciting

Your year is what you create!  If last year was that kind of year that you would never want to return, then you must consider what you might want to do this year that will make your year memorable.

Too often we believe that we need to just stick with that one thing, one routine, one person, or one event and nothing more.  There are many people, places and things that we can experience to make our lives worth living, but we don't experience much because we are either too lazy, too busy, too boring ourselves, or too whatever to do much!  Now I'm not talking about running away from responsibilities, finding a cheap thrill, and living it up, but what I am saying is you can seek the kind of things that will make you come up higher mentally, physically and spiritually if you just step out of routines!  For some it is changing the way he or she eats, who they spend time with, and how they obtain income, what might be your needed changes for this year?

Whatever you feel the need to do, why not start performing the research, making the phone calls and doing the necessary things that will make your year a great one?

Some things you might want to start doing is as follows:

1.  Put money aside for a future event or vacation.  What was it that you missed out on last year because you didn't have any money saved up or time?

2.  Make free time to connect with people who can help you in your future endeavors.  Did you miss out on friendly engagements, meetings, etc. last year because you got distracted?  Look up dates, times and locations of events and mark your calendar in advance.

3.  Plan to move.  Tired of the apartment or home you are in?  What could you do differently?

4.  Job relocation.  Would you like to find a job in another state?  How about making plans to visit?  Send out resumes and see what might result.

5.  Start a new hobby, business venture, etc.  Who said that "you can't, you won't, you will not?"  Make up in your mind to ditch some of that TV and Internet time as well as those negative voices too and learn something new!

You could probably think of some other things you can do to make your year less boring and more exciting.  Note your thoughts, make plans, and start working toward goals--best wishes!
