too many words

       Some good people talk too much.  They talk about good things, but after a while that doesn't matter anymore.  When you talk too much, people can't hear you because they're feeling trapped.  They're busy trying to escape.  Either they're scrambling to come up with an excuse for leaving the room, or they've given up on that and they're planning tonight's dinner.  Either way, it's a lose-lose.  People walk away feeling lonely and isolated, and the guy who was talking has no idea that he just made their load a little bit heavier.

"Be quick to hear, slow to speak. . . ." James 1:19.
