”God gave you two ears and one mouth,” was an expression that my Mother regularly used with me. You see, she knew that her baby girl had a “motor mouth” and talked incessantly, (even occasionally in her sleep).
To grow, you have to stop talking all the time; you have to listen. You learn more when you do. When you listen, you can even hear what others are saying about you. How about that!
For sure, that reason in and of itself should move you to shut up! Photo credit: the balanced careers.com
