How many times it happen with you that you are not in a good mood and some old friend ping you and started talking in a sarcastic way? DO you lose your temper?
It happened with me many times but I never lose my temper but today evening I don’t know what happened to me.
I started comprehending his questions in my own manner and started throwing comments which are years old. The other guy also becomes hot and now, I have crossed almost all the limits. I replied to him in a very harsh manner try to show him that unlike him, I have lots of pending things to do. I started chatting so fast that I even forgot to read his messages and typed so many things which I wasn’t supposed to say. Actually, I was quite busy and the other friend just pinged me to pass his time. I was not at all in a mood to listen. It was his 3rd ping in a day.
After a lot of thoughts, I replied to his chat and against my expectations, the conservation took very unexpected turn. At last, I said sorry and said I was very busy and lot of pressure and all and was not at all in a mood to chat. He said OK. This way our conversation came to an end. I was really busy. But from last 1 hour, I was not able to do anything in spite of lot of pending work and deadlines, I am just thinking and feeling bad about the conversation.
I am on my summer assignment with one of the organization and it will complete on 3rd June. Only 1 week is left. I have to make the reports, ppts and give presentation to the higher management.
Now, as I cool down and take a bath, I feel if I talk to him nicely for 5 minutes, then I can easily continue my work. This way, in order to save minutes, I have wasted hours. And also, I have disturb his mood also. Now, I was too shy to start a conversation although he is online. Sometimes, you do things which you don’t want to do at all but at the moment, lost your temperament.
Suddenly, i remember 2 quotes, never hesitate to say sorry and forgiveness is the biggest attribute. Hope so. Small things can make a difference, never take anything in granted.
After writing this post, I felt bit relief.
Hey, look, I didn’t meant all that. I am really sorry. Hope you understand.
