All too often we are guilty of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. I am guilty of that myself. But one thing I was always taught and it is something I used to tell my kids …once spoken words can not return, there are no backsies when it comes to communication. say what you mean, mean what you say is what many are taught. But what is often forgotten is …Think before you speak. The tongue is liken to a rudder, if it is under control, we are safe, if it is out of control (talking all over the place, or saying hurtful things) the damage is beyond repair. Many times you can’t undo what has been said, so think before you speak and choose your words wisely.
