How to Swallow… Your Words

I am now in my late 30’s, and I still have an aversion to swallowing, but now I find it hard to swallow words. Words that I want to say and shouldn’t like “I told you so” are hard for me to swallow. Even when I’m right and know pointing out that fact will make the other person feel small or hurt, I feel compelled to say it in some way. Most of the time, I know I should not remind the person that I was right, but something in me closes my throat so that I have to spit those unproductive words out.
