> With his defenses laid low by the headache, I guess, he started to say something then hesitated. He said that a colleague of his referred to what they did as prostitution. I thought it was so funny that he was afraid to tell me that. I told him that the majority of clients thought of it at one time or another that way, it's just that we didn't like the imagery.

That made me smile. Yeah, I guess it is something that nobody likes to think of much. Distasteful. Yuk. There are similarities... As I have noted before... But there are a few differences too.

Yeah you have people skills Dinah. You get on with people great on the boards don't ya? You are really well liked and respected here and you can't have that with no people skills.

You are terrific at validating when that is called for.
And listening.
And sharing your experience.
And not judging.
And you are friendly.
And you can say what you think in a way that doesn't cause others unnecessary hurt or distress.
And you warn people nicely when they might be upsetting others.

Aren't all those great people skills?

And 'sensing' peoples emotional state and taking that into account when you are responding to them is something that allows you to me more caring - to notice peoples sensitivities.

It can be a mixed blessing.

But yeah, you have great people skills :-)
