In life, we can either let our experiences make us bitter, or we can channel that feeling towards being a good example in order to improve things.

my loose lips

I use to Not find it so difficult to keep shemiras haloshon. I didn't really have much to talk about others. But nowadays, I find it harder to keep because things have changed like a friend that came back into my life. I talk about them to others, but know I shouldn't. The good thing is that maybe now I'll receive more points by guarding my tongue since it's harder.

The Chafetz Chaim mentions that when we speak poorly, we block prayers and blessing. But guarding our tongue helps to bring blessing. Of course, there are times when we need to say something to protect people. For that we learn what to say and how.

Well have a good week

It's a challenge. But the harder it is, the greater the reward. It's so important to learn the halachos because there's so much to know about what is and isn't allowed.

It's hard and talking about others is always a good subject even though we know we shouldn't.

Indeed I agree that we certainly get more "points" when it's harder not to.
