Do you ever stop and think about the words you use often? Do you ever find yourself in a conversation, and realize you’ve used the same phrase or word over and over and over?
I’ve been realizing lately that I refer to myself too much. I start way too many sentences with “I…” It really hit me this weekend at the wedding when I was talking with one of the other bridesmaids. It was just a quiet realization that “Wow – I talk about myself too much!”
God has been convicting me of this the past few days. I’d noticed it before, but had forgotten that I needed to work on it. Then at the wedding, He reminded me again. It makes me take a long, hard look at myself, to see just how self-centered I can really be.
So what am I going to do about it? As for outlining certain steps, I’m not sure. But I do know that I’ll be trying to think more before I speak, as well as asking the Lord to help me in all that I say.
How about you? Are you self-centered? Do you use “I” too much?
