A gentle answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger.
This photo kind of reminds me of myself.
I am a laid back person for the most part.
Calm. Easy going.
But do you know what this is a photo of?
No, not a mountain.
Sometimes some people just irritate me.
And annoy me.
And I just don't get why they have to be so stupid.
(Sorry to be blunt and say that but I am trying to be honest about what goes through my far from perfect little mind.)
And I just get fed up!
I bet you can guess what happens next.
Have you ever thought about a volcano erupting?
It has this huge outburst, and then all that hot lava flows out,
forming a river that flows down the mountain.
And then what?
Having an outburst of anger does the exact same thing.
I am afraid that this is one of my faults, so I know.
I just blow up, and then it seems like that blow up causes one thing to happen and then another thing to happen.
Next thing you know, I am up over my head in a mess of my own making.
Just like the flow of volcanic fluid.
Then, when I get done saying my piece and stomp off mad,
whoever I took it out on is left standing in my mess.
Some witness I was there, huh?
So, am I the only one that struggles with this?
