Acting on an impulse makes you feel good for the moment, but almost everytime it's the wrong thing to do. Like for instance, you are most likely to say the wrong things when you are angry. You have no idea that your words can irreversably harm another person's sentiment. But still you go ahead and say it.. why? Because you are acting on an impulse. You want to get it all out and be done with it else that nagging voice in your head won't let you rest in peace! I have easily misunderstood people in the past without even thinking twice. I never used to wait for their reasonings and even if I did, I never acknowleged them.
But I guess, only as time moves on you learn such things. You learn that you aren't supposed to trust your impulsiveness, and that you have to scan it with your magnifying glasses before giving it the go ahead. This means that I think twice nowadays before getting hyper over things. Am I finally growing up? Am I finally taking things the way it should be taken?
A recent conversation :
1 : No! Say all those things now! No one has the right to say such things to you. Now! Now! NOW!
2 : I think I should just wait for sometime before I do.
1 : But after cursing, think how good you will feel!
2 : Hmmm....I will surely regret it later....
1 & 2 are the two sides of yours truly. There was a time when side 1 used to dominate. Now it's side 2.
Am I finally growing up?
