Stop and Think

I don't know if I am the only one that has a serious problem with answering fast. By that I mean when someone asks a question or when they just make certain comments. I am one of those people that never really felt I should censor my thoughts. Now I am realizing though, it's not always what I say, but how I say it. I also realize that just because I don't say everything that comes to mind I am not being fake, but I am being careful. I am being careful not to say something that I will later regret. Our words can hurt so much and being careless with it is a terrible thing to do.

I have started trying to stop and think about it first. Not that I am going to give a person a fake response, but I am going to ask myself how should I word this or in a few mintues, hours, days, or years will I feel like saying this was not in my best interest. Every Friday I give a homework assignment and this week is no different. The assignment for this weekend is try thinking of times where you said something you wish you hadn't, if you can find at least one instance where this occured join me in stopping and thinking about what we will say before we say it. As always have a great weekend and be safe.
