“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18)
“A soft answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger.” (Proverbs 15:1)
YOU CAN LEARN:
Develop genuine interest in people. When you talk to a person always make sure you focus only on that particular individual and don’t get distracted by anything else. Follow Abraham Lincoln’s famous self-instruction: “I do not like that man; therefore I shall get to know him better.” You can learn to care about others around you. You can learn to trust people around you and by doing this other people will be interested in you. They will care about what you have to say and will trust you.
Living every moment with tension can take a toll over time. It can make you ill. Honor Slow is Beautiful, as I once saw on a button, when you can. Maybe stay in pajamas on Sunday. Someone told me the whole family did this spontaneously one day and it was better than the last vacation.
Being angry and not sinning requires the discernment of constant practice (Hebrews 5:14) because so much of our anger is rooted in our prideful, selfish sin nature. And if we’ve suffered under the tyranny of a sinfully angry person, emotionally it can be very difficult to distinguish between sinful and righteous anger. But because it is something God calls us to, we must press into it.
If we cannot change the world (and I suspect we can’t), we can provide all people the sorts of environments they deserve in their daily environments of kindness, compassion, safety, and challenges.
Basic human decency is being polite, courteous, civil, thoughtful, and using tact and diplomacy when with others, thus treating them as you wish to be treated. As beings endowed with a capacity for language and reason, we are uniquely suited to the apprehension of this principle, and most people have an intuitive grasp of it. The world is a beautiful place when everybody is mindful of one another. If we all were humble and kind and gave others a little bit of our time. To show them they have importance and significance just the same as the things we are all so caught up in.
According to many researchers, intuition is far more material than it seems. Intuitive decision-making has the advantage of being quick. We get an overall feeling for a situation, based upon evolved emotions and heuristics and modified by our own experiences, and can act quickly on such feelings. And, we constantly take in all that happens to us and interpret it. We constantly interpret life. As Blaise Pascal wisely said, “The heart has reasons that reason does not understand.” And your heart is always right.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints...
We should be eager to embrace self love, and be a perpetual learner in this voyage. I’ve stopped apologizing for who I am and have learned that I am “perfect” the way I am. I will constantly be growing, evolving and working on bad habits. But, those flaws; those imperfections are part of the beauty that makes me, me. “If you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” ― Marilyn Monroe.
Complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others...
The person who thinks they can and the person who thinks they can’t are both right. Which one are you?
1 Timothy 4:8
For while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.

For the greater part of us, parenthood is a decision and one which we should make with our eyes wide open.
