“You know..” There are many words which we use unnecessarily.
We use them subconsciously without realising:
- How frequently we use them
- How they add nothing to the conversation
- And how they can irritate people.
- How they can sound condescending
A common example is adding ‘you know’ to the start of sentences. ‘You know, people speak too much.’
Examples of Unnecessary Words
- I mean
All these words can also convey a kind of condescension.
I am making a big effort to remove these unnecessary words. Speak less, say more. Silence is good.
