How do you get yourself to shut up?

I talk way too much. Way. Sometimes I just let my mouth shoot off and I hurt people in the process. :(

If you can't get yourself to stop on your own, then ask someone to help you. It might seem odd at first or you might even get mad at that person a few times, but it will make you more aware of how you are acting...and stop you from going too far as well.

Pay attention and focus. You can also keep in mind that not everyone wants to hear what you have to say.... so keep your opinions to yourself unless asked for.

Keep your mouth shut. It's not really that hard just don't talk . As for hurting people same things apply just watch what you say .

I'm glad to see that there is someone out there that talks too much, and knows they do.

Don't feel like you have to have an opinion on everything or say the last word. There is a lot of wisdom in controlling your tongue and keeping silent. It is very hard to rake back words.

try to remember that people will still like you if you're not always the center of attention. in fact, they might like you more. I can imagine you saying to yourself as you read this," that isn't what I'm trying to do, I jist talk a lot." but if you continue to do it after you know it, there's an underlying reason. and since the person talking is who has everyones attention, well, I'm sure you can follow this line of reasoning. i am sure you're a nice person or you wouldn't be concerned about this. so just keep working at it, most worthwhile changes with in a person don 't come quickly or easily, but you're on the right track. hope I could help a little.

Take a step back, respect those you are in conversation with & don't be abusive, insulting or think your better than anyone else. Maturity needs to come into play here. Interaction only works if it's in a positive environment without put downs & insults to others intelligence.
