I'm never good at waiting for the right moment. You know when you want to ask your parents for something but you have to wait for the right moment before you do, so that you'd have a better chance at getting it? I suck at that. I seem to just blurt out everything whenever I get the chance to talk. It's a really, really bad habit. I often ruin my chances because of it.

I feel the same way sometimes.I really ruffled the feathers of my teachers because I just said some words before I even thought about it.So in order to avoid the same dialemma,I began to cultivate a habit of keeping silent.It helps some time.And I dont have as much trouble as before.

I am also one of your kind.That means to say that we people dont have patience.Patience is the key to success.We talk irrespective of the mood our parents are in as soon as we get a chance to talk to them rather see them.

The title of your discussion reminded me of the opening line in a poem by John Donne - " Hold your tongue and let me love you".lol. That you can not wait for the right moment is a case for many. This is somehow applied on me too. It is irresistible really. But waiting for the right moment has an extra flavour.

I am not that too outspoken. I need to find the right moment to say something to my parents especially when it comes to asking for a favor. Though I give out hints first before I really say the real request.

I also has a problem of not asking things at the right moment. I have good patience, but I don't have the habit of talking the right moment. I don't know what to ask and when to ask at the right moment. I have seen some of my friends have a good habit to art of conversation. I am not good at it. I have also ruined lots of chances in my life because of it.
