    Wow, just listened to the seven sins at the beginning and, them, one of my best friend definitely committs all of these sins when he speaks, and still when he tells one of his story he's one of the most entertaining persons I've ever met.

    33. And who is better in speech than he who [says: "My Lord is Allah (believes in His Oneness)," and then stands straight (acts upon His Order), and] invites (men) to Allah's (Islamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says: "I am one of the Muslims." (Q.S.41 : 33)

    The first deadly sin, gossiping, can be justified. You could justifiably criticise, even lambast, your boss behind his or her back if you were working for minimum wage. If you were a highly paid motivational speaker, on the hand, you would probably have little cause to complain about your superiors.

    These are also part of our personality. Without any of this I don't understand how anyone can have a conversation of any value. Trying to be positive all the time, you end up lying to yourself. People's attitude these days are so selfish. Take someone who wants to vent or is asking for help, that would deemed as negative and self-loathing, so they avoid that person. People that have their life together will obviously speak at arms length.

    People may still not talk to you after you follow all these steps, but I truly think that, beside trying to make people listen, you just feel better about yourself. Ask yourself, isn't it more pleasing to listen to a calm, slow paced voice, rather than a highpiched, fast paced voice? Even if people don't talk to you that much, is better to know that the little words you spoke to them made them feel safe around you.

    Other than these things, maybe race can be an issue as well? Sometimes i am put in a group with caucasians (not blaming caucasian race here) but most of them don't listen to what i have to say and it makes me anxious to say anything else since they don't listen to my previous opinion. And I can tell you that I'm always avoiding Gossip, Judging, Negativity, Complaining, Excuses, Lying, Dogmatism and I follow the other things as well. I was thinking that maybe since I'm a 5'2 Asian girl that they don't listen to me? Does it has anything to do with race? Perhaps?

    I always wondered why others desperately wanted to sell their ideas, while I was just desperately to sell reality; i was searching every waking moment, and they had stopped searching ages ago. Then I wondered why they laughed at me. Later I learned why they did, as it came across my analysis. And now, no one wants to sell their ideas to me anymore, so it got a little lonely.
    Maybe if you walk away from all this 'selling', it will be quiet.
