Practicing law can be stressful, life can be stressful. Self control, discipline and restraint are three of many necessary ingredients to navigate through both. Often times, remaining silent is the much wiser path to take regardless of how momentarily good it may feel to tell someone what you really think…especially when they ask.
If you find yourself in such a situation think of these two verses:
1) Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.
2) …whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Regardless of what walk of life one hails from or the beliefs/non beliefs one holds, you can’t go wrong if you follow these two guides.
