You have certainly already heard that there is time for everything, right?
Well then, today we are going to discuss how to learn to wait and choose an appropriate moment.
Appropriate moment for what you may ask…
The appropriate moment to ask for something, to talk about problems, to express your opinion, to reveal your side and the list goes on.
He had a difficult day at work, nothing went his way. His boss scolded him several times. He has had enough and can hardly wait to get home…
He has hardly walked through the door when his wife…
“Look Joseph, I can’t take it anymore! I am tired of hearing complaints about Jo Jr. at school- you have to do something about it! The kitchen sink isn’t working and I already told you that we need a new washing machine! The fridge isn’t properly refrigerating and the food is spoiling!” And the list of problems goes on….
Can you imagine what will happen next?
If this wife were wise she would have waited for her husband to arrive and “sensed” what kind of mood he was is.
If she senses his bad mood, then it certainly isn’t the right moment to “toot the horn.” In reality, we should disconnect this horn that only serves to irritate one another.
There is without a doubt a right moment and a right way to expose problems and you need to be sensitive enough to identify these moments.
If you are annoyed or at your brink, then it also isn’t the right time because you will most likely say things that you don’t really mean… To repent about words spoken rashly is valid but the problem is that you can’t take them back no matter how sorry you are.
“Starting today you are going to think about this and be sensitive enough to identify the right moment. Avoid saying anything when you are irritated or upset.”
