    It's Better This Way.

    It seems at times that i really don't think at all, judging by some of the things that fly from my mouth. I'm a loud  quick witted girl that says everything on her mind, without thinking about the effects it has on other people. I've been called tactless before, ...

    Usually the Best Stuff

    When a friend or someone in need talks or emails me and I get back in contact with them I usually don't think before I speak. And that is when I seem to resonate with them better. Then my thoughts, feelings and opinions don't cloud what I tell them. And being that my censor...

    I Am So Guilty of This

    I have an acquaintance who has six children, five of them under the age of five. To me she is bright and bubbly, friendly and a really 'together' person. I was visiting recently when she let it slip that she was taking Prozac. Without thinking, I opened my mouth and blurted...

    How To Think Before I Open My Mouth? :(

    All the Time

    Which is why it is probably best that I stay quiet and let everyone else speak. I always get in trouble, or say something I dont actually mean, so now I have learnt to keep my mouth shut, and let everyone else do the talking.   I do have things to say, but sometimes it's...

    It Gets Me In Trouble

    I really don't think sometimes, especially if I am nervous. I then get worried after I have said something stupid because I am worried the person I was talking to got really offended or just found it to be very bizarre, and then I get even more nervous around that person, and I'm...

    I Try...Really, I Do

    But at times that censor connecting my brain and my mouth malfunctions and I end up saying something that a) I don't express properly, or b) is better left unsaid. Most of the time, its a sarcastic comment or witticism that I probably should keep to myself. Other times, its an...

    Sometimes Good, Sometimes Funny, Sometimes Bad.

    I use to have the habit of just blurting out something before even having a thought.  I still occasionally do it but not very often. Sometimes it would be alright for me to do this. Then it could be funny at times. Also it could be bad and would start a lot of fighting. So now I...

    This has got to be my worst problem. I really hate when I end up cursing to myself, and kids happen to be around. Maybe I'm used to there not being any kids around or something, and I really wish I never got into the habit of cursing. I try to stop myself sometimes, but when I...

    Often
