What do you do when you are confronted by person(s) who is on the verge of totally losing control of themselves in a middle of having a conversation about a sensitive matter? And if you confront them with your telling them that they are making fools of themselves and that you might soon lose control of yourself. And if you don’t stop, you indeed do lose your self-control as you stand there and exchange nasty, heated, cutting words that cut deep. And you hear yourself saying, dumb, stupid words that you know might seriously strain, shatter, even destroy your relationship with the person in front of you.
Let’s stop here and take a look at what is happening in your head as I ask you . . . What would you do? I would urge you to stop the conversation and go somewhere to regain your self-control. I suggest you offer a prayer to God and ask Him to help you to heal and restore your broken relationship. I urge you to ask God for the strength to apologize with the right words, and to ask God to become more important in your future relationship. After you have done all that I have recommended, offer your loved one a hug and a kiss, and an invitation for dinner at your favorite place for time to heal the strained relationship.
Love You All,......Chaplain John
