breathe. pray. meditate.
We've all been there.
Someone who professes to love us, a friend or relative, sends a text message or an email going off on us.
They feel righteous in their emotions and say things that are mean, possibly true, but definitely bordering on unforgivable.
Don't give in to the temptation to respond in kind... Because it's not kind - to you or to them. Instead exercise your discipline to BPM:
Once you determine that the message you've received is one of "those" kind of messages that require a measured response, hit reply and respond
"Breathe. Pray. Meditate.
After you have done these three things, if you still feel this way, let's talk about it."
And leave it there.
