Is it right to bite one's tongue when annoyed, or let 'em have it? Should someone unload on others just because they are ill, in pain, or in fear? It seems there are so many people investing in what they don't like, emotionally, then let it gush out of their mouths like an EXXON oil spill. It's hard to undo that sort of accident. When annoyed, I wait three seconds before speaking. The decompression time is invaluable. If I'm still annoyed after three seconds, I grab another three seconds. There have been entire 'conversations' where I've said nothing. LOL! If I speak while angry, well, it has not been so good.
Truth without compassion is cruelty.
