I once wrote about how there is no such thing as a crime of passion. This was proven via a man’s research that I respect. I still believe this.
Factoring out drunkenness or some other situation that truly impairs a person, I wonder if things are really said or sent in the “heat of the moment”.
My friend, Ben argues against this. He says there have been many times in his life that he’s written angry or hateful letters…but not sent them. I think most of us could say the same.
Other times, he’s sent what’s he’s written. Either way, he’s says he’s aware what he’s doing. He’s thought it through.
“Once you do that, you can’t take it back. There is no, oops, let me take that back, because now I don’t like the way how I feel. You’ve shown your hand and that’s it.”
I think he’s probably right, but I have Libra so I want to know what others think.
What are your experiences with this? How deliberate are your communications?
