An uncontrolled tongue can be the greatest destroyer of self esteem and relationships.I try to control my emotions until i can't take it anymore and burst it out and after that i would feel better.

I usually think before I speak and calm done if I am upset so that I can discuss the issue rather than argue over it. So to sum up yes I have a lot of control even though if tired at times I lose it a bit. Ellie :D

Yea. I am learning Self Control. I am someone who is forthright and at times tactless. I just say out whatever I think or feel but it often gets me into trouble. I guess my mouth acted faster than my brain. Now, I'm learning to think before I talk. As for friends' secrets, I have no problems keeping them. I have a lot of self control for that. That's why my friends feel safe to tell me secrets.

I have a load of self control. I watch what I say, and when I become angry, I become absolutely emotionless, beause I know that expressing too much emotion will get me into trouble. This dries me husband nus, because he just can't ight with me. LOL
