Have you ever been caught up in a situation that you feel you have to say something, should have said a word or maybe ending up saying the wrong words?
I most cases, we react to news, gossips or even hearsays. Our reactions will depend on what we hear, see or feel. Emotions often if not always have the biggest role to play when we react to any kind of situation may it be positive or negative. Always take extra precaution, this may sound a bit weird but before letting words leave our lips we should consider a few things like age, gender, mental status, emotional stability and most importantly the situation. You can ask yourself this question. Will the person understand what message am I trying to convey and how well? If not, then how will I make him or her understand.
