It’s easy to become annoyed by irritating comments, especially if they’re made by people on your questionable list. They tend to make us think, do, or say irrational things. Your day can then become unpleasant without you even knowing. However, others around you like your spouse, kids, or parents will be in tune. Instead of transferring your temper or irrationality, try to stay calm. The best way is to say a prayer asking God for patience within you and peace surrounding you.
A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted.
~ Proverbs 12:16 [NLT]
