Words of Wisdom

You know that little thing inside your head that keeps you from saying things you shouldn’t? Yeah, I don’t have one of those.

My people skills are just fine. It’s my tolerance to idiots that needs work.

I’m only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand.

So when is this, ‘Old enough to know better’ supposed to kick in?

Have you ever listened to someone for a while and wondered, ‘Who ties your shoelaces for you?’

I prefer not to think before speaking. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

There are times when my greatest accomplishment is just keeping my mouth shut.

Be careful when you follow the masses, sometimes the “M” is silent!

    Sometimes I put my foot in my mouth too. It is hard to stop and thing before blurting things out. That is great advise. Sandee, you and Zane have a fantastic day.

    I do have the little voice inside my head that says "NO!" when my pet rock is saying "don't admit you hear voices or they'll lock you UP!". So I ignore the little voice and constantly am laughed at by a pet rock…

    lol! Good ones. The one that especially resonates for me today is "I'm only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand."

    Have a great weekend, Sandee! big hugs xoxo

    Thanks. Wisdom cab be a scarce commodity. There have been times in my life when a filter would've been advantageous so I live and learn.

    I am the opposite. I tend to keep too quiet for too long and then when I do reach a limit and speak out, I'm viewed as being a big fat jerk. πŸ˜‰ I'm 45 now, so it's probably not going to change.

    Hahaha. Love that about the masses. I was raised in the South, where we learn to be kind to idiots' faces, then talk about them behind their backs, usually prefaced with the term, "Bless her heart…"

    This is my favorite. Miscommunication happens so easily. If I worried about what others understood, I've never open my mouth. πŸ˜‰
