    What do you wish me to know?
    What message would you like to convey to me that you feel is important to you?
    What in your view/opinion would I benefit from by changing about whom am?

    Isn't it just as important to be a listener, than it is to be the story teller?

    1) About the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 2:1-8).
    2) The above.
    3) If you are comfortable in exerting yourself to serve others and works of mercy then increase them until you are uncomfortable again and persist in that, and then increase when you become comfortable again, repeat throughout your life. "Your Commandment is exceedingly broad," is said of God, and one can always become more perfect in this. Moreover, never delay repentance or mind your own failings more than God does.
    4) Yes. Listening is essential, and is a skill which can be trained.

    All my own opinions in the answers of course.

    I do not wish to tell you anything, no message. (How can I have one when I do not even believe in existence of Allah?) Can you change? I do not think you can. You are perhaps too fixated on Sufiism. It is important to be a listener but not every one is.
    We have a saying in Hindi "Bhains ke aage been bajaaye, Bhains khari dakaraa'e" (It i useless to play a flute before a she-buffalo, all that it can do is to grunt - it will not start singing). ;)
    Except that he does not relish your worshiping any God other than him, that will send you to eternal hell.

    2 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
    4 thou shalt not bow down unto them, nor serve them; for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me;

    That your kindness and gentle disposition is admirable.

    As a Hindu, I believe no spiritual effort is ever wasted. Do with that as you wish. :)

    I don't know. (In my case, I personally need to develop more of a humble attitude about my level of spiritual advancement.)

    It might be more important to be a listener. I once heard a story about a rishi, I think, who became the great being he was by listening to his teacher with the utmost devotion. Really wonderful. :)

    I wish for you to know that it's a good idea to take care of yourself.
    The message I'd like to convey that is important is know yourself well and what you need. Keep boundaries up when needed. Do whats best for you.
    Changing you? Only you know the answer what's best for you. Who am I to say you need to change this or that?

    Yeah that's part of His exceedingly broad Commandment. To me at least.

    To be rational and realistic in life. See things as they actually are and refrain as best as possible from embellishing and fabricating what is observed and experienced.

    "I" always keeps changing, but that is not you, that is an illusion. Know what does not change.
