When the words sting

When you are angry, and you don’t want to say the wrong thing, here is a simple statement that will gain you some time to think. 

Let me step away and consider your comments and I’ll get back to you.

Have you ever encountered a person that always seems to have a sharp tongue and a rapid-fire response? I believe that those individuals practice and have prepared in advance. When we have a plan in place it often eliminates stress and concerns over how to respond. Lowering the possibility of blurting out the wrong thing will put you into the power position in a conversation. So practice today, consider my comments and get back to me.
