There. Said.

And part of growing up and growing more thoughtful is learning this:

Sometimes I shouldn't say anything.

I shouldn't say anything when I'd be shooting off without enough info. I shouldn't say anything when I might possibly drown out or distract from people more affected by what's being talked about. I shouldn't say something when I've already said what I needed to say and don't need to add to it, because adding to it may dilute it.

I am always trying to get better at not saying anything.



Take care.
