If you could take back one thing you said in anger, what would it be and why?
In my lifetime, I have said many things in anger. I have been angry because of what a person has done, or failed to do, whether it be a criminal or just a lab technician. Some people only respond to a strong voice, and, when it is appropriate, I can provide just that. However, in every occasion, I always know where I can and can not tread. Even if I am angry and say something as a result of that anger, I never, ever, go too far. If I did, I can only imagine the consequences that might befall me.
Besides, what is said is said, there is no taking back, only apologising or making up for the harm caused, if any. Regretting something causes distraction from what is going on at the present moment, and I definitely can’t afford to get distracted from what is important in my life. My work, my duties, living life itself is more important to me than worrying about some silly past remark that might have cause someone a slight bit of harm. If people hold grudges or just plainly hate me for who I am and how I do things, it is not my fault. I do my job well and I turn up with success not failure. I don’t cheat, I don’t rush things that need time, I try my very best not to make mistake, and if on the off chance that that does happen, I will try and repair the situation.
It is not worth my while to live in the past, I live in the present, for the now and to chase the people that would otherwise, without me, get away.
