Emotions! Our emotions can be deadly weapons that we don’t always see coming or don’t immediately recognize. This is especially true in the midst of a disagreement.
For me, I know I’m up in my “feelings’ when I start saying Well, I feel like… or I feel that… At that moment, I have to take a step back and analyze my thoughts and actions. I’ll be the first to admit, being emotional about a situation can feel good to your flesh, but can make a bad situation worse.
So in those times, stop and ask yourself, I am thinking or speaking from a place of maturity or have I reverted to childhood? If it’s the latter, humble yourself and refocus your energy toward a solution.
