12 steps to guarding the tongue.

  1. Shut up. :)
  2. Think of how others would feel to what you say.
  3. “Do unto others what you want others to do unto you”
  4. Be patient; not everyone wants to listen to you speak all the time.
  5. Listen to others.
  6. Listen.
  7. Pay attention to what others are saying!
  8. Smile :). It actually helps!
  9. Don’t think too highly about yourself.
  10. Be secure, know who your identity.
  11. The cowards’ way: backstabbing, gossiping, slandering.
  12. Speak only when needed.

Of all these, love, love and love; love is the only reins that can keep the tongue in check, and where else can you get love apart from Love himself?
