Avoiding all the "slips" of tongueNot a single offensive word uttered, can ever be taken back, is a famous saying in Tamil.
To follow this in real life, is a huge challenge. Each one of us is guilty here. There are no exceptions. It often starts with our wives. We ventilate all our official frustration on our wives, trying to justify part of it, as "slips" of tongue.
Sadly, it is not, as our wives are deeply disturbed. Children who are adamant, and who do not even listen to us, also face our wrath. Use of any offensive/bad word, should be totally avoided.
It is very easy to preach, but very difficult to practice. Even the best of professional Managers and leaders have huge "slips" of tongue, which prove very dangerous, and even leads to violence, in the case of public figures.
We need to be calm and, simply let go. This is very important. The second thing is to have a philosophical bent of mind, as this will make us think before we utter a single word. In fact, we stand to lose even the best of friends if we are not careful.
Members may please through additional light on what can be done in this regard.
