Lately I’ve been thinking:
Conditioned personality seems to disregard the whole idea of spending my valuable time in thinking about my response. It reads any situation as vaguely critical, confrontational, opportunistic, and needing an immediate reaction to prove it exists. It has enabled a pretending that it must protect itself, be clever, and elevate itself in the presence of others.
Filing up empty conversation space with automatic responses is like using a parking spot when there is no reason to park the car.
Once we release our words, we don’t get to retrieve them and edit them. We have delivered the words to our environment and they are no longer ours. So, value what you send, place a worth on it, and make sure that you say what you mean.
