Speech is a powerful force and can be used for good or for harm. To practice right speech, you must speak the truth and avoid unnecessary communications such as gossip. While you might not always be certain of the right thing to say, you probably know the wrong things to say. Here are some of the examples of speech you might want to avoid when practicing right speech:
Cursing or abusive language
Raising one's voice unnecessarily
Speaking too much (rattling on)
Think before you speak and try to restrain your tongue because these actions can lead to suffering for yourself and those around you.
