A very wise person told me yesterday “You are only responsible for two things in your life. One is your thoughts and the other is your actions. Two things you are NOT responsible for are other people’s thoughts and actions”. In other words, you have the ability to hurt someone or react to someone in a certain way, or you can think about the consequences of your actions before responding.
To me this is very important, as I tend to have a razor sharp tongue and this often gets me into trouble. However, there needs to be a happy medium. You need to know when to let things go if the other person chooses to respond differently.
Deep, so very puddle deep.
