Did I just say that? | Did I proclaim it out loud? | Well shit, no filter

We all say things we don’t mean to sometimes. It might be something that embarasses us, a fruedean slip, let’s say. It may be something that embarasses the person we are talking to and it may be something hurtful. When we do, we need to decide how to deal with it. Do we ignore it and hope it goes away, do we apologise, It really depends on who we are and who we are talking to I suppose.

One important thing that I do know is that we can avoid the problem by training ourselves to pause and think the thought through before the words come out. This training can take a long time especially if you’ve been running without a filter for a long time but it is likely to make your life and the lives of those around you happier…
