I’m JUST saying…

The word “JUST” gets misused often. Or not well used, is a better analogy, I believe.

The following uses of the word “JUST” are semi useless:

  • I JUST wanted to see if you received my email …

OR

  • I’m JUST following up to see if you are interested …

OR

  • I’m JUST popping in to say hello …

OR

  • JUST a note to say thank you for the lovely gift…

Omitting the word JUST in your statements will make your comments stronger and more meaningful.

Unless it’s used as an adjective:

  • In a just world…
  • They got their just reward… 

Reread your emails, social postings and thank you notes. Eliminate the word JUST! You’ll sound much better.

JUST an idea for you. LOL BETTER: AN IDEA FOR YOU!!!

PS – Remember: JUST is a weak, wimpy word
