Actions speak louder than words.
There are times we speak without thinking and others when we act without thinking. But you can be sure, that actions hurt other people more than words do.
Many times, we act without thinking and regret our actions. And there are other times you stop and think about what you are about to do… At those times, it’s best to ask yourself the following questions:
- How would I feel if I were the one this was happening to?
- How would I act if it’s me the one this was to happen to?
- Am I happy right now?
- Will this make me happy in the future?
People regret acting rashly.
Regret NOT thinking about the consequences of their actions.
How much time does it take anyway?
A few moments of gratification vs an indefinite amount of time regretting your decision.
A few moments of thinking about who all you are affecting and the consequences of your actions vs not regretting a well thought out decision.
The choice is yours.
