Right Speech

In your conversation, don’t dwell at excessive length on your own deeds or adventures. Just because you enjoy recounting your exploits doesn’t mean that others derive the same pleasure from hearing about them. (Enchiridion XXXIII. 14)

How often am I really just waiting for someone to finish speaking before jumping in to tell them how I feel or what my thoughts are? How much time do I spend listening and how much planning my next word?
