Probably one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made was speaking while I was upset and/or angry. When you are feeling this way don’t speak and remove yourself from the catalyst of your anger if it is possible. For the most part actions done out of anger will be regretted. I hope that I will take my own advice and remember that in the future. Also, be careful when being straight up and honest. You can be honest, but don’t say too much because you don’t know the major hurt that you can cause a person. So choose your words wisely and think about the consequences perhaps it would be better to not say. I had to learn this the hard way. All the while I thought that I was being straight up and honest and sharing my feelings not knowing that I hurt the person I was talking to. InshaAllah they will forgive me.
