Does this happened to you, that you talk too much or say random words without even thinking what it was all about? Ever felt that you're mouth has betrayed or even in a way fooled you, this happens here on the net and even on our daily personal encounters with people we come to interact with. Though this does occur to me, I do my best to NOT just talk and run my mouth. After taking some time of thinking, I'd hit my head and blame myself by saying things that I will come to regret. Then I'll just sit down and look back at how dumb was I, that I fell victim by my ever DECEIVING mouth!LoL I know some people also do this, but I'm not sure how they'd feel about it so do please share your experiences!;)

I used to do that sometimes ago, it was like i love talking and some few times I wish I had not said the things I said cos they didnt make sense. And sometimes I even felt embarrssed. So I learnt that in the multitude of words there is error! Then I have to brudle my mouth and to listen more than I talk.

That's correct, it's better to keep our mouth shut when we don't know anything what we're talking about. The less mistake we make, the less harm we do..

Yes I do and I just thought we are all humans that can be happened to all. As my father told me the most sinful part of our body is our tongue that because of the words that we are speaking can hurt other's feeling or can cause trouble.

Yes, I believe that's what I've read in the Bible. The thing that makes men sin, are the things that comes out of our mouth and not the one's that comes in or should I say we eat.

lemme hit your head if you do it again raijin. LOL this just happened to me yesterday. i was at the office. there's an ID of a fellow employee submitted to us to be signed by our boss. it so happen that that employee is a proven drunkard ("patapon" na actually) and he is a security guard in one of our provincial stations. i saw the picture in the ID and i said to my officemate, "that's the lasenggero (drunkard)" (and i think i added, he looks like an addict ^__^;;) and it was too late when i remembered that the chief of the station where that drunkard works, was there sitting in front of my table. ^__^;; so what's the problem?? they are relatives. .

That's one thing I'd never enjoy indulging with, you're lucky that man's relative (which happens to be your boss) didn't get to hear who you're actually pertaining to.

It happens to me from time to time and I always have to be weary about what i say or how i respond to a few of my friends and neighbors. Sometimes it can't be helped as I may be so deeply engrossed in the subject and then all of a sudden i let slip and its like, "umm sorry I didn't mean to say that" or "ummm, now why did i say that" or whatever. Sometimes I say things that are completely off subject and wonder what is wrong with me at times LOL i get those looks like "Duh" hahaha then i feel really silly and leave the room hahah!

You just have to laugh at it sometimes, just hope that no one gets offended of what you have just said!;)

yes it does happened to me alot. I mean, I try to keep my mouth shut as much as possible. but sometimes, some people know how to bring it out from you, you know what I mean? they know what questions to ask and what are the signs! I try to keep my promise whenever it's supposed to be a secret. :) but then again. Sometimes, I didn't even know that I already spilled it out.

I'm not really sure of what you mean, so I guess I'm not that really following you. But either way, I don't "try" but "do" it..

I think in some point in our lives we've experienced this, whether unintentionally or not. There are times when I say things; only to regret it after. I'd feel like such a fool for saying the things I did and wish I could have said something else instead. i would then make a mental note to say things differently should i encounter the same situation. i guess we could learn from experience, try to think before we speak and not simply say things..but you gotta admit though, sometimes it's easier said than done haha. still, gotta try.

Learning from it, that's the best to deal with such as these to avoid from happening again. Indeed, it's alot easier said than done..

This has happened to me so many times. So much so that it has become too frquent to be a simple slip of the tongue. For example i could be talking regularly and all of a sudden in pops a word that i may have said half and hour ago. With any luck its just this but other times i somehow come up with sounds that are even words. Maybe its just but i defintly have a deceiving mouth

Really this is happening in common life. Even I realise that its happening when I speak something without having preparation, thinking then this occure. And try to speak fastly to express more words then its happen.
