Take a Pause


Take a pause, and then ask yourself: Is my anger in this relationship worth a nuclear bomb?


Once you blow up a relationship it’s impossible to ever put the pieces back together again. I know from experience that even if you can find the pieces they never go back quite the same, and that’s because trust is missing from the pile.

Always take that pause. There’s no hurry you know. Time is on your side, and tomorrow? Well, it’s a new day.

“You will not be punished for your anger; you will be punished by your anger.” ~ Buddha

  1. Wise words dear lady, this moment is all there is. One in-balance creates another and on the ripples go ❤
    Great share ❤


  2. Excellent post. Your comment on even if you find all the pieces they never go back just the same way is brilliant. Trust is one of the adhesives that binds relationships together. I think love becomes slightly diminished over time when trust gets diminished as well. Thanks for posting.


  3. Awesome quotes Michele.
    And so very true.
    Great post.

  8. I like the sentiment. But the quote is not actually by Shakespeare. See, https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/did-shakespeare-say-he-always-felt-happy/.

    This is so true you and your readers may enjoy this reflection on the topic


    • Yes they would for sure. I enjoyed reading your Slow Down and the advice of at least waiting 10 min. We all need to give ourselves time to cool down before making a possible horrible decision that ruins lives.

    Very well said… I know what you mean 🦋… Shakespeare’s words are really wise and accurate. Expecting too much from others or certain others is something a real source of unhappiness. Taking a break is always a good choice… love and best wishes to you 😘
