THE TRUTH ABOUT AGGRESSION


"If you're aggressive in your dealings, that's how you'll be regarded in the world.


You might smile and give generously,


but if you frequently explode in anger,


people never feel comfortable in your presence and you'll never have peace of mind."

  9. So very true, Jim! It took me quite a long time to learn to defuse my anger and not explode. Now it takes real provocation ~ but watch out if you provoke me successfully, because I can really let her rip! LOL!
