What we say, and how we say it, can have long-term consequences, so before you speak, always think things through.
Control your temper, and refrain from acting out impulsively, because, even if you apologize after slipping up and saying something you shouldn’t have, the proverbial cat is already out of the bag and can never be completely wiped away, much the same way that even when a trial judge upholds an objection in court, what was testified to cannot be totally disregarded by the jury!
It’s all about control, intelligence, compassion and feelings, and, simply put, treating others the same way we want to be treated.
Respect goes a long way in this world, so always keep on your toes about how you interact with others.
This way, when you take a look in the mirror, you can feel good about the person who is staring right back at you!
If you haven’t read my book, “Jew in Jail” yet, I hope you do.
It is chock full of insightful information on how I was able to recover from my past addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling while incarcerated, and go on to lead a happy and healthful life.
Until next time, everyone, have a great day, and week ahead!
