Speaking with a Bitten Tongue

New York - Times Square - July 1977

Self-indulgence is an aspect of self-centeredness.

I find including others more is a difficult process. The plan is to first make space for them then figure out how to use the space.

It is hard to ask people about themselves when I am biting my tongue to stop talking about myself.

Maybe I am spending too much time biting my tongue. Maybe I should spend more time getting interested in other people. And maybe I could start by confirming if I am as good at cold-reading as I think I am.
