Talking too much

So Charlotte tells Jack, 'I have a new ambition in life.'

Jack wearily, 'Oh no..... sounds dangerous....'

Charlotte continues seriously, 'I'm going to talk less.'

Jack roles his eyes and tries to hide a smirk.

So now Charlotte wants to know how can a person train themselves to talk less?

Maybe Charlotte doesn't need to talk less. Maybe talking too much makes her who she is?

Yes charlottes' is real so is Jack. Unless your an extreme sufi who thinks we don't really exist or a philosopher.

The thing is when you talk too much, when you have something very very serious to say, it's not always taken seriously.

hey i've noticed that no one apart from umm ZN has actually advised charlotte, and sheila aswell. 'what do she?'

Think before speaking. Really think "will I achieve something beneficial by saying that or am I complaining, gossipping or just plain whinging?" Ask that question to yourself all the time and then just don't say it even if you have the urge.

think if it like this- if charlotte is too busy talking she may be missing out on listening to valuable things that other people have to say, or may not be giving other people the chance to speak.

but i don't think charlotte speaks too much anyway

I think charlotte kind of realised when she met someone who talks more than her and didn't give her a chance to speak! It made her think, 'Is this how I am with others??!!!

Lol! i like it that charlotte talks! i dont think its too much. Like someone said it makes who you are. But obviously it becomes a thing of concern if no one else can get a word in edgeways. but i dont think thats the case with the non existant charlotte.
Also, when the other person has switched off then thats an indication of to stop talking. As long as its not haram talk i dont see the problem.
charlotte can try to stifle herself for a while but i tell ya it aint gonna work cos Rosemary tried once not be who she is as in went all quiet people found it wierd. That was a non existant ages ago, but just a example to contemplate over......

For all you non bengalis out there
she said she's laughing so much she's dying of laughter. ok it sounds quite morbid in English but in Bengali its just a phrase. so dont worry everyone she is ok, Alhamdulillah! But better notify charlotte her talking to much is causing havoc on this blog!!!
