I have started to notice that I begin a lot of sentences with "I just thought..." or "I just wanted to..."
What's with the "just"? The implication being "merely". It's a diminisher. A way to make what I have to say of less importance than what someone else might think. I catch myself doing it constantly. Lately I tend to remove the "just" when I notice it.
