We all know that we tend to say rubbish, when we are fuming with anger and full of emotions. Emotions have no logic and must be ruled and disciplined by the mind and will.
When we are angry, it is better for us to be silent and say nothing, because we will most likely say wrong things, and things that we will later live to regret, and maybe never be able to erase from the other persons mind.
Words have broken up marriages and great relationships. There are some words, that some people never forget when you say them to them. They may forgive you, but those words linger and inhabit their souls, and remembering those words torment, torture and cause them pain until the Lord heals their minds. We just need to be careful with words, especially when we are angry.
Words can be very harmful, hurtful and damaging. Once spoken, it is difficult to reverse them or take them back. It is better for us to form a habit of processing our anger.
When you are angry, take time to process and work through your anger, and get your points streamlined and organized. Then, later talk calmly to the person who is the source of the anger, and articulately communicate and resolve the conflict. However, never ignore the conflict.
That is what I tell my husband all the time. Think before you open your mouth
Exactly. It is always better to think before talking. Thanks a lot for the contribution to this topic.
AMEN! So very true sister. That’s why I always keep my mouth close when someone get angry with me which is very rare. I always like to seek God first before I utter my words. I want His words to always be mines whenever I give a response. God bless and continue to use you for His honor and glory in Jesus name! Blessings and more grace! 🙂 <3
Good reminder to not let hurtful words come out when angry. It only makes the situation worse. And like you said it does not mean we do not address that which has caused the anger but calmly talk about it.
A beautiful and inspiring post, Laura.
So true Laura, and thank you. So many people really need to read this, understand this, and do this in my life, yet so many just go into overdrive with anger, that is what ended my marriage, her not thinking before she letting rip at me.
Thank you again.
Thank you so much for the response and meaningful contribution to this topic. It is so sad that many beautiful relationships end up broken, because of lack of knowledge and communication skills. People not thinking, and tearing others apart, simply because they are angry, never yields any fruitful result. Blessings
Thanks needed this
I used to fly off the handle and my life has become so much easier since I’ve learnt to hold my tongue. It’s hard to do though!!!
Yes, it’s really hard but it becomes easier with practice and the grace of God. Thank you for the meaningful contribution. Blessings 💕
