Me telling you that your constant chatter is annoying those near you is not the same as me saying you are annoying.
I give lots of feedback all day, plus I teach my students to reflect on and critique the impact of their own actions (be it behaviour, working to their potential, tone of voice, etc), however I am always respectful and acutely aware of a need to criticise the behaviour, not the person.
It is doable, but it takes a conscious effort as it is a less natural way of phrasing things.
