    With me I don’t say anything and then wish I had. I think of some great answers after the fact.

    I pick both

    I think I feel a lot worse after I put my foot in my mouth than just miss an opportunity to say the right thing. Or, maybe it depends on the circumstances.

    I am more of regretting open my “big” mouth again. I think things over, then say it and still think: Ellen, speaking is silver, silence is gold!”

    I can sleep better at night knowing I had something I wished I’d said and didn’t, rather than saying something that I wish I hadn’t. That always makes me feel way worse than holding something in. More times than not, when it comes out and I wished it wouldn’t have, it has either hurt someones feelings, or I realize how incredibly stupid I sounded, and I don’t like either of those feelings.

    Heck I say stuff often that I wish I hadn’t so that is REAL EASY for me. 🙂

    I used to be one that never said anything, everything was okay with me, whatever… And there were a lot of times that I didn’t say something important that I wish I had. Things that, even now, 20-some years later, I think, “wow, what if I had just said something? How would things be different now?”

    So I’m starting to finally learn the lesson that it’s better to speak up. Truthfully, sometimes gently, but it’s better to say what you feel needs to be said, than to bite it back and regret it. Doesn’t mean that I don’t stick my foot in my mouth, but it gives me more peace, knowing that I put the truth out there.

    It bothers me when I didnt say something and wish I had.

    For me, it’s a matter of saying something and regretting it afterward. Most of us usually get a chance to readdress a question and make a better thoughtout statement, but to say something regretable…..I’ll pass on that thank you!
