I Am Learning How To Hold My Tongue

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 28 People

    Which Is Very Good...

    Because I tend to say things I regret later after the anger fades, but lately, I have actually been doing a pretty good job of holding my tongue and refraining from harsh words. I do mess up from time to time, but I've been doing a good job at holding my tongue lately.

    I like learning how to do new things. I especially like challenging myself to do things that I'm not very good at and hands on things. I've been learning sign language lately.
