Biting your tongue just before it expresses something quite right but nonetheless doomed to be poorly received – that’s a good thing.

You can choose to adjust your personality so it is more pleasing and less annoying. Sometimes, the choice involves biting your tongue.

 

Benjamin Franklin

"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain - and most fools do."

 

The cornerstone of our personality, our mental attitude, shows up as the general flavour of our thoughts.

We can choose from 3 mental-attitude flavours: Positivity, Negativity, & Indifference.

Positivity is the best flavour...a rich flavour in many ways.

Negativity can be hard to swallow...but, at least, it gives you something to argue against.

Indifference - so bland it's not worth writing about.

 

 

 

I developed a serious interest in other people ... in less than 6 decades.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

From a very early age, I noticed people making mistakes. I didn't just notice it. Their mistakes scraped in my ears, seared my eyes and caused me all sorts of other discomfort, anxiety and annoyance. 

But, in less than 6 decades I managed to get beyond the constant barrage of other people's errors...and, when all the dust cleared, I found myself truly interested in other people.

Even those not blessed with natural, pleasing personalities can learn to think and bite their tongues.

When you annoy people you don't make money...[unless you happen to be a sitcom actor or a Don Rickles clone]

People are 'selflings': that's a good rather than a bad thing...so focus on yourself...regularly.

About that suffix 'ling': yes, often pejorative; but, not always.

So, cut other selflings some slack, as they will have to do for you if you are to achieve your desires.
