      First of all, please don't be hard on yourself.
      The fact that you are noticing your behavior and that
      you want to stop doing it is really wonderful. Most
      people aren't even aware of thier negative behavior.
      And, I know how you feel, because I have been there.
      Just continue to witness your behavior and when you
      can, control yourself from saying the inappropriate
      thing. Even if you have to walk out of the room.
      Remember, this doesn't have anything to do with anybody
      else and how they are being, it is about you and your
      perception of things. Continue to meditate. Two meditations
      that you may find helpful with this, that are on the
      meditaion society's website, are: #38, The Dali Lama's
      Meditaion and #70, Non-Expression of Negativity. If you
      truely wish to change your behavior, eventually you
      will.

        Hi Lora,
        I would suggest visitng the website for the meditation society
        http://www.meditationsociety.com/. There are lots of techniques
        listed there. Try a few different ones until you find one that is
        easy to follow. Perhaps the first thing to try is to just sit in a
        quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on the sound and feeling of
        breath. Just breathe natually. Notice your thoughts, but don't hang
        onto them. Just watch them come and go. Watch and listen.

        I hope this helps. Meditation can seem difficult when you are first
        starting out (and even after you have been doing it a while for that
        matter). Just try it and be patient and perserve. The hardest part is
        the actual committment to sit down and do it. Just sitting quietly
        and watching your breath is more beneficial than you may imagine.

        Eve
