Why can't I say what I think and think what I say?

WHEN I SAY WHAT I THINK IT COMES OUT LIKE THIS.
WE'LL it's the truth and I'm really not trying to hurt them on purpose.
They should be able to handle the truth.
I'm just going to say it ,I can't worry about how they take it.

WHEN I THINK WHAT I SAY IT COMES OUT LIKE THIS.
Will it hurt their feeling?
Will they be able to handle the truth in Love?
Is the timing right?

WHY can't I say what I THINK ?
if you don't THINK what you say you may say the wrong thing
or you could get caught up in something you could have avoided
so try to  be "SLOW to "SPEAK and QUICK to "HEAR.
make sure you know what you heard  and THINK before you answer to IT!
