  1. I can relate to #1. Even as a child, I would say, "No, wait...trying to explain myself." I still do that! #3, no...I tend to not speak. I contemplate long and hard, then come out with guns blazing, if needed. But, oftentimes, I just suck it up and holdbit in.

    4. Yes, I accidentally deleted it when I was deleting the duplicate of your first comment. Here is what you wrote... "Oops! Nope. We do get smarter, but no one has all of the answers.
      Thanks for joining us for FriendlyFill-Ins!" For unknown reasons several comments various people leave show up as duplicates. I left your duplicate above so you could see what I mean. :-)

  2. I think, mostly, that I don't have any of the answers. Even if I do have an answer, I'm the only one listening. We all have to find the answers for ourselves, I guess.

    I agree with #3. I have to work hard to ponder things before I respond, especially in upsetting situations.

    Have a blessed day!

    1. A lot of things I thought I knew the answers to, I learned that maybe it's not that black and white or simple! #3 Continues to be a work in progress for me! :-)

  3. #3 and #4 are so true. I tell myself to think before I open my mouth but too often I just jabber on without any thought. With age comes wisdom and part of wisdom is knowing how little you really do know.

    1. Friendly Fill-Ins are fun, Ellen! I am getting better about thinking before speaking, but it's still a challenge for me. It's always the better way though, impulsive speech often leads to regrets! Life is a little challenging at the moment, but I think that's true for many of us, so we just keep going as best we can!
