Stop being impulsive

I’ve realized today that I have a problem being impulsive. I’ll even end a relationship and I don’t want to be that way anymore. Husband and wives should take consideration dealing with serious problems like infidelity issues and etc. Our impulses tend to make us greedy, insensitive and thoughtless. Impulse is driven by emotion and the more emotional we become, the less clearly we are able to think. A lack of impulse control can make us say things we regret, be addictive, go for short term ‘advantage’ despite long term losses and eventually wreck your life and that of people around you. Developing the ability to delay gratification enables you to mature as a human being and lead a more productive and happier life. So impulse control is really about self mastery. If you are always at the beck and call of emotionally charged impulses then you are like a ship in a storm with no one at the helm.

Wheew.. sabi nga ng isa kong friend, “wag padalos-dalos” it over and make some thinking before you act.
