Quote Of The Week

What do you think of this quote? Are such decisions and choices really irreversible? Can we not escape their consequences?

Remember, when you make a decision or take any action in an agitated state of mind, it can have long-lasting consequences which are mostly irreversible. When you are angry, you are most likely to act without thinking. You act on the spur of the moment. Your action or decision is hasty and impulsive. You don’t give a thought to the after-effects of your action, choice, or decision. This impulsiveness can lead you to make decisions you will regret later on. You may cause harm to yourself or others in anger.

Subsequently, when you calm down and come to realize that your choice or decision was wrong, you will be left with no option to reverse it. The damage has already been done. You’ll rue the moment you acted recklessly.

Why not then learn self-control and exercise restraint when in anger? It is easier said than done. However, with some practice, you can master this art of self-discipline.

Remember one thing: NEVER ACT OR REACT WHEN IN ANGER. Just calm down and let your anger subside. When you make a decision in a relaxed state of mind, you’ll consider all pros and cons of your decision. You will take everything into account before making up your mind. Your decision will be rational and will save you a lot of trouble. On the other hand, if you act impulsively without weighing the likely consequences of the decision, you are likely to repent later on.

  1. Totally agree that we must not make any decisions or take actions when we are in the grip of anger. Such decisions often become lifetime regrets. Occasionally, all of us have high tempers, and it is quite natural. However, we must not let the anger go to our heads. We should change our position, take deep breaths, drink a glass of water, etc. These things will definitely help us get over our anger.

  2. I second this. I acted in anger a few times in my life, and none of those moments make me proud now. It’s always best to step out of whatever makes us angry and take a deep breath before doing something we can’t take back.

    But also, I believe we have to be compassionate with ourselves if we ever lose our temper because beating ourselves up about what happened doesn’t help anyone, either.

    • All of us have been guilty of acting in anger at some stages of our lives. It’s rather natural. Maturity comes with time, and then we become more calculated with our responses and reactions. Getting ourselves away from such situations will always work.
      And of course, we have to be compassionate with ourselves otherwise we’ll always be feeling guilty.

  3. Unfortunately, I have a really quick temper. I get mad really fast and end up regretting it after a while. And as someone who has experienced that I very much agree with the quote. Always walk away and take time to calm down. If you’re still angry after a few hours figure out how to deal with the situation in a way that doesn’t cause permanent damage.
