Attitude Change

I am currently in a dilemma. I have an attitude problem. It's not a bad attitude outlook on life, but it is more how I respond to people or react to situations and/or problems. It is affecting my relationship wtih my boyfriend of 5 years, as well as, with my parents.

My boyfriend has pointed this out many times, and I have said that I will try and change my attitude, but it does not seem to be getting any better. I am not sure what else to do.

Mostly, my problem is saying things without thinking and it comes across as rude or that I am giving attitude. As soon as I say it, I know that I should not have said that, but it is too late at that point. I have tried the think before you speak thing, but it is usually a split second decision and do not even think about thinking about what I should say or how I should react before it is out of my mouth.

We want to get married, but if my attitude does not change, it will be over. What should I do? What steps should I be taking to work on and change my attitude??

Please help!
