Do you ever say something thinking about yourself when someone else is saying something about themselves, and what you say makes you sound totally rude?
Well, let me give you an example. Tonight I was talking with a good friend who was lamenting her weight. She said "I really need to lose X pounds."
My response, as I think about myself, "yeah, I know."
Oops. I guess I need to learn the words of Dr. Phil: "It ain't about you!"
