Wiser with age

There was a time when I would say the first thing that came to my head. It usually got me into trouble. I think as I'm getting older, I'm becoming more sensible in my choice of words. I think twice before I say anything. It's like sometimes, I think out the entire sentence in my head, and run it through my conscience to make sure it is appropriate enough to utter out loud. Yes, I am definitely wiser with age.


Why does it depress me to read others' blogs? Is it because I wish I could write like them? Is it because I realise that I probably will never be able to write like them? Or is it something else? I mean, the whole blog thing is supposed to be cathartic and uplifting, and instead, I find myself feeling more and more frustrated. I focus on writing epics instead of just concentrating on keeping it short and concise. I know that I am capable of writing well, but I think I focus more on perfection than on just conveying my thoughts. Argghhhhh!!!!
