“It’s just…” “Seriously” “Actually..” “Totally” “For sure” Anything that states the entirety of a situation or topic. I also find myself using crutch phrases when trying to end my point.
It points out the fact that I’m repetitive with a lot of the points I make.
I don’t think I use “Honestly..”, “Frankly..” or “Literally”. Someone once pointed out that it makes people think: “You’re only now being honest with me?” 15 months ago
It is really easy to use crutch phrases, but it annoys me to here myself do it, i am sure it makes conversation less interesting. 18 months ago
This bothers everythang out of me. Every time I am talking to my step dad i will say one of these and he will count. I dont do it as much while I am talking to him because you know its annoying. 23 months ago
I even say “You know what I mean?” after almost everything! Fortunately, most people think I’m just trying to be funny… 2 years ago
How I did it: These words are just crutch filler phrases. "You know", "I mean", "Essentially", "Basically"
If you slow down your pace of speech, you'll be calmer and you'll use less of these words Read how I did it… 2 years ago
