The more I listen, the more I hear….

It is amazing what shutting your mouth can do for you. I had to learn and control my mouth over my lifetime. It is so not easy, but I do know and understand that words are something that cannot be taken back. When we are in the heat of a debate, fight, or whatever conversation you may get frustrated in, the moment you begin to lose your “cool”, step back and shut the f up. I have to tell myself that and I have learned to listen to myself. When we take a step back and are quiet, we are asked “oh do you feel guilty?” Nope! I just know that it is the best thing to do at the time. You can always think and then say things later if you still want to. Maturity and responsibility should go hand in  hand.

Enjoy your evening! I know I will!
