That I don’t want to hear,
I still do this.
It’s quite effective.
Don’t discount childish ways,
If they still work.
Haha, brilliant… I’m a good one for having selective hearing, or not listening at all, like an inbuilt off on switch !!
Ohhhhhh, I’d like to have one of those switches Ivor. Can I find it on Amazon? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAA! I crack me up. 🙂

Nup, only available at my local Man-Shed, Charity Shop Sale, !!
Well if I ever get there to stand in your shoes we’ll visit the Charity Shop Sale too! 😉
Hope they don’t sell out of the “Switches” before you get here,,….
I hope I can remember this one, Colleen. I also have selective hearing for most comments made around me, but once in a while someone is speaking way too fast and way too loud so I’ll just have to revert to being a 4 year old again.
4 year olds are pretty brilliant in my opinion, and honest!
you hit the mail on the head again, Colleen.
It was a good time when this worked. As an adult it does not work a lot, because you start to think too much. Beeing selective in hearing is unfortenately not my strength.
But there are always lots of people willing to “help” you. And if you do not want to run crazy, you have to decide one thing: your way by your own willing and own decisions. Therefore you have to learn to be selektive and just pick out the best advices for you….your illustration made me laugh!
I’m glad it made you laugh Anie. 🙂
yes I laught about the nice illustration!
That makes me happy 🙂
yep. right there. i’m really good at this.
It’s a good skill to retain (and I have literally used it VERY recently).
The tune out is awesome, MBC!
It works well MBM. 😉
if you really can, it is surely awesome…if you just want to but you can´t it worse than before!
It’s all done in fun here Anie 🙂
o.k. my side was not fun. I came online to bring my serious thoughts in order. So thank you for telling me, that is was only fun…: )
🙂 Oh some things, here, can be quite serious. Or sometimes I am feeling serious but I want to lighten my emotions so I do something light hearted. There’s just a hodge podge of things to be found here Anie. 🙂
Yes, it is very effective! We all probably need to do it more often.
It would keep our blood pressure down!!!
Going to put it into immediate use! Love this one….
Thank you Louise 🙂
And if they still work perhaps they aren’t childish after all. Perhaps they’re even adultish.
I think the credit goes to the kids Russ, they seem to be more wise than many of our adults these days 😉
Hahaha. I could relate immediately. i used to do something similar but not quite as PC. Always calmed me down.
I bet the not quite PC method is something I would laugh and be familiar with. 😉
I suspect so.
I agree. 🙂
Always nurture and listen to the child within 🙂 Lovely post as always!
THank you Infinite! 🙂
Always welcome 🙂
I, for one, am a huge advocate of childish ways!
And I, for one, love your advocacy! 😉
You’re so right! Why not? I think I’ll try this one again. I sure do have times it would come in handy! 🙂
I put this on FB and my friend said she loves to say things to make me do this. She gives me lots of practice at it! 😉
Heehee. Totally. 🙂
😉 It works well for me!
I do try not to listen to defeatist attitudes, negative thoughts and other “wet blankets” who try to rain on parades. I should put my hands over my ears, at least to make a point!
I heard on a Hallmark movie a quote I may repeat in my own thoughts. Since you are a worrier, change it to become a Warrior. 🛡 This is my 2018 shield! Love you, Colleen.
Thank you Robin! I return the love ❤ And I like how you say that, "try not to listen to defeatist attitudes". I don't have a desire to carry those burdens.
❤Thank you, Colleen. Good communicating with you!
