I will edit this later:
Sometimes all people can talk about is themselves, and how great their lives are. Let them have that moment. It's probably the only time they're really as happy as they say they are.
I've found that the more someone talks something up, the less significance it has. You may think they're doing that to impress you, and in some cases they probably are, but more often than not they're doing it to make themselves feel better. They're doing it to make things seem better than they are. They're doing it because you probably believe them, and the more they lie, the more they believe it too.
You have to take those people with a grain of salt. Usually, whatever it is they're talking about isn't relevant to your life to begin with, so if you just listening can make them feel good, then let it.
Everyone deserves to be happy. And if you can bring even the slightest smile to someones face, do it.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”- Leo F. Buscaglia
