Give yourself the 5-second rule…
Before responding to someone in either a positive or negative way, give yourself the 5-second rule by:
Counting up to 5 seconds in your head
By doing so, you will be able to gather your thoughts, words and actions and respond in a way you would like to respond, rather than giving your emotional reaction immediately, and consequently regretting it, as this response wasn’t up to your standards.
You will end up being SORRY and beating yourself up about it, which is not good for your self-esteem.
Think about it….
