We have all said words out of anger, in response to being hurt by someone we love. While it could feel great to lash out, most times we find ourselves wishing we hadn't. This ritual is designed to help you stop yourself from saying things you will regret. It comes in handy when you feel angry words making their way from your brain to the tip of your tongue.
: whenever you feel the need to speak hurtful words
: vinegar, freezer safe container, freezer
Fill the freezer safe container with vinegar. As you do so, repeat the following words.
" Cool my words, cool my boys, cool my tongue. I will think before I speak. I will pause before I head home. I will consider the damage that my words can do."
Place the container inside the freezer and leave it there for as long as you need to.
