2019/05/17 Making an effort to be more of a listener than a talker could prove helpful in ensuring you dont say something you regret later. A thoughtless comment could result in you wishing youd engaged your brain before speaking. Whilst it might not be particularly hurtful, it might not contain as much truth as you imply it does. A need to justify your comment could result in you being unable to do so. Being a listener and sticking only to the facts will reduce or eliminate any embarrassment.
