Do you struggle with losing your temper? You are not alone.
Perhaps your mother or father yelled a lot and now you find you do too.
Or maybe you never even knew you had a temper until you got married or until you had children.
Long ago, I turned to the book of Proverbs in my Bible, grabbed a highlighter, and marked every.single.verse. that referenced anger and the words that come out of my mouth.
I marked verses like:
“He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.”
“A quick tempered man does foolish things.”
“A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, and a man of understanding is even-tempered.”
“A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.”
And this one…the GMG Verse of the week! I committed to memory and began working on it in my private life:
“A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.”
But I still lose my temper and in today’s video I’m sharing 5 Things That Make Me Lose My Temper and how I manage my temper when it arises.
I hope by being open – together – we can help each other!
Do you relate to any of these 5 things ? Which one is a trigger for you?
