QT10020: Proverbs 15: 1 (Calm Your Storm)

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
It is okay to get angry but instead of arguing with harsh words, it's best to have a calm and soft voice when dealing with people. One of our pastor once preached that even if you throw food to chickens, they'll turn away from it and that applies to us too. Even if you are saying something right, if you are harsh in delivering your words, people will back-out or ignore you at all.

Confronting people with anger or hatred always end up fighting but being calm can resolve a lot of things. It goes without saying this is also applicable, specially applicable to couples. One tip to couples, if your half is already angry, let him/her get angry and do not confront them with anger. They'll eventually calm as they realize your calmness if not you can always ask nicely - "Am I shouting at you? We can better resolve matters if we think calmly."

That's all for now. God bless from me and the rest of the gang (my family).

Just another wacky family outtake!
