Have you ever regretted something you said?

Most of the times I don't cause I usually say what I really feel and lately I'm trying to control what is better left unsaid. Because that will keep me out of trouble. I just try not to get into the drama or create a drama myself. LOL.

Hi santos mari chris: Generally when I feel angry I regret for the things I've said but now I have more control of myself so it's quite the opposite, I regret for being to in control and not telling the offender what I feel. ALVARO

A few times I have regretted what I have said or how I have said it. It doesn't happen often because I don't talk a lot. The times that it has happened, I feel so bad about it I have made a point of telling the person what I meant by my remark. Most of the time my comments were not taken the wrong way, but I have too much time on my hands and make it into something it's not in my head.

There have been many times when I wished that i could take something back that i have said. Once the words are spoken, they are spoken. there is nothing we can do but to live with our words and deeds. it would be great to be able to undo or unsay something so we are not living in regret. it is just isn't something that we have any control over.

There have been many times when I've regretted something that I said. I make many mistakes but the one thing that I can be proud of is that I try to make up for them. :)

I have experienced that sometimes- because i usually say things I really regret when I am angry...I am already a frank person but when I am angry..I say harsh things already. That's why I control my mouth and my anger so I won't hurt people.

hello, Yes, sometimes I just dont mean what i say, because sometimes I hurt someone because of all my careless words, but you know I dont really mean it. That is why all I do, before I say anything I just think it first before stating it because we dont really want to hurt someone but our words. And sometimes it is too late to realize that we are wrong but we stated it and we already hurt other.

I regret a lot of things I say and need to learn how to keep my mouth shut! My problem is when I get mad I say a lot of things out of anger that I really don't mean at all. When the anger passes, I just feel so bad inside and wish I could take it back but it has already been said. I wish I could learn to not say anything until I think about it and if I really mean it, then say it. I don't mind telling people how I feel at all. It is just when I say things out of anger that I hurt other people and myself because of how guilty I feel inside.

Actually before i say a word i tried to examine it if its good or bad. If i could hurt a feeling or not. But sometimes i could say a word out of my mind and i cannot do something about it and it makes me feel sorry. Weird, yet still happening.^_^

I had experienced that from time to time. I tend to limit things to say because with less talk, we commit less mistake. However, if we don't express what is within us, people will not know what they would need to know. What we need to develop is a keen sense on when and how to say it.

I am constantly surprised at the things that come out of my mouth! Usually I make it my goal to say as little as possible. Often, I come across as abrasive or sarcastic. There are so many things that are unnecessary to say, and I am trying to learn to enjoy the sounds of silence more than the sounds of my own voice. Also, I try to listen more and not feel that I have to follow up what someone has told me with a similar anecdote or advice or whatever. Usually people just need to have someone to talk to, and I would like to be that person.

I think at one time or another everyone can relate to regretting something they said. I know I cetainly have. Kudos to you for trying to practice self control. Many of us need that. Then again, we sometimes regret what we didn't say :)

As one matures, they get to be more careful with the things that they never should have said; or if you are in the corporate world, one has to be mooore careful with the things we write. Being tactful with words gets one away from trouble. There are times though that words slip out of our tongue when we are angry. This I pray to the Lord for more patience so as not to lash out on anyone.

We are kind a opposite. I'm a drama queen, i don't usually meant what I said. I know I'm used to be inconsistent duh! There are lots of instances that I have regretted everything I have said specially if I am in my boiling point that I couldn't be able to control myself then later on I tend to ask for an apology.
