It seems like people are spending a great deal of time and energy weighing in on what others should or shouldn’t be doing or saying. Often, in so doing, their words and actions demonstrate a lack of self-control.
How often do we stop to consider whether our thoughts, words, actions, and reactions are constructive, healthy, and appropriate? Sometimes we can become so focused on what others are saying and doing that we lose sight of what we’re saying and doing.
There’s infinite merit in evaluating ourselves far more than we evaluate others.
Frequently, people justify their lack of self-control by casting the blame on someone else, highlighting the truth that it’s easier to point the finger at someone else than it is to point it back at ourselves.
The world would be a much better place if we all started taking responsibility for our own actions and reactions.
I’m not saying we can control our feelings. I’m saying we can learn to control when and how we express them.
I don’t know about you but I want to be someone who’s self-controlled… and to be the first to say I’m wrong whenever I’m not.
The key to self-control?
