I always say the wrong thing. When I'm around a lot of people, I'm mostly quiet. But once I get to know someone I start talking more and the wrong things start coming out. I hate it!
I might, for example, tease somebody. With good intentions. But then I might say something that offends someone! Like my best friend and I always joke around and tease, but then one time I will say it in front of someone else, or take it too far, and offend her.
Or, I might make an observation in front of the wrong person. Once I said something about my friend's behavior in front of her husband that he could take the wrong way.
At work lately I CONTINUALLY open my mouth and say things that I shouldn't. I TRY SO HARD NOT TO. I think about what I'm going to say and who is around before I say it all the time. And then all of a sudden I open my mouth and BAM something stupid slips out.
I am so tired of this! I think I get so excited to have something to contribute or to keep conversations going sometimes that I don't think about what I say before I say it. I'm afraid people are going to stop trusting me to tell me things if I keep blurting the wrong thing out!!
