Someday we will learn the very best way to handle each and every situation that comes to be – right there in front of us.
- No quick reactions.
- No dashed off e-mails (or texts).
- No short answers.
- No shouting “NO!”
- No emotional outbursts.
It isn’t inherent. It isn’t cultural. It isn’t instinct.
It is practiced.
Someday, we will learn to curb our tongues – say what we mean rather than what we think – off the cuff and in the heat of the moment. This is simply something that comes with experience. Elders are great at this; until they get to the point where they don’t think it matters anymore – and, then, they don’t care if they offend anyone. Or, if you’re a kid – kids are always honest – they always say what they mean to say.
