If people really knew what I was thinking sometimes.I Would really be in trouble. I have a pretty good poker face, most of the time. But if people could hear the conversation going on on my head. Sometimes it is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool . Then open your mouth and prove it.
I think the hardest part of not saying what you think is when you really think the person is wrong or headed for trouble. This is especially true with real friends or family. You know you can only say or do so much. Then it is up to that person to make their own decision. When they’ve figured out how wrong they where and expect sympathy from me is the hardest . I so want to point out if they would of only listened.
The other end of this is in public listening to people I do not know. Every so often I can not keep quiet and open my mouth and say what is on my mind . I regret it later. As I have gotten older I have become better at picking and choosing my battles. Even then if people could hear the conversations that go on in my mind I would probable end up in a lot of trouble.
