Self-Control

The following is a poem that I believe serves as a great reminder to be mindful of what we say and do. Sometimes we let our emotions get the better of us and say things and do things we know we shouldn’t. Deep down we know the correct way to act and how we should treat people. Learning to have greater self-control will help us avoid spreading unnecessary and pointless negativity. Peace, love, and positivity all the way for me.

Self-Control

By Anonymous

I’ve heard it said don’t go to bed

while hanging on to sorrow,

you may not have the chance to laugh

with those you love tomorrow. 

You may not mean the words you speak

when anger takes its toll,

you may regret your actions

once you’ve lost your self-control.

When you’ve lost your temper

and you’ve said some hurtful things,

think about the heartache

that your actions sometimes bring.

You’ll never get those moments back,

such precious time to waste,

and all because of things you said

in anger and in haste.

So if you really love someone

and your pride has settled in,

you may not ever have the chance

to say to them again….

“I love you and I miss you,

and although we don’t agree,

I’ll try to see your point of view,

please do the same for me.”
