TryingToDoThings is Thinking deliberetly.
I’m constantly speaking too soon, saying something mean or stupid. I talk really fast so slowing down (so I can at least preview my thoughts before I let everyone else hear them, lol), that’s what I expect the key to this goal to be.
Sometimes I actually recognize something may not be the best thing to say and then I’ll actually say it anyway. I think that’s partially because I feel the need to respond to people quickly with something “fitting” or appropriate, even if it’s not the brightest thing. I think it’s also partially, or mostly, because I don’t realize how important it is to take the time and have the thoughtful attitude necessary to say the most intelligent thing possible.
