    Do you use the words "I", "I've", "I'd", "Me", "My", "Mine" too often? :bigthink:

    How to Stop Talking About Yourself


    1. Recognize whether you're speaking with the words "I" or "Me" in most sentences.
    2. Respond to questions without turning the focus onto you.
    3. Avoid rambling when the conversation is turned back to you.
    4. Bring up a topic that you know they care about.
    5. Avoid changing the topic to you.
    6. Be thoughtful: waiting for the other person to stop talking so that you may speak is not listening.
    7. Practice active listening. Usually, people need you to just listen, and not advise. Active listening helps you to control a conversation and keep it on track.
    8. Start giving the appropriate credit to whom it is deserved.
    9. Control your excitement. We all tend to dribble on about something we said or did; however, it's only impressive to us.
    10. Avoid using a conversation to boost your ego.
    11. Compliment other people.
    12. Help people without telling the world.


    ""Humans are naturally self centered, in fact, most of the time we think about ourselves. To avoid projecting your natural selfishness consider the following.
    "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt".
    ~Abraham Lincoln""

    A quick check of advanced search results shows that "I" and "me" are too common to search for

    I always thought I was doing a public service since I am very interesting and my stories are interesting. I'd rethink it but I trust my instincts.

    I thought that about me, also but I must be wrong about me and my threads and posts that I make related to myself.
