This is such an important area, so easy to talk about, not too bad to apply when in a situation that is not "earth shattering", and extremely difficult when in the middle of a gut wrenching situation. It is simple to talk about self control. However, "feel" your stomach go into a knot when you're in the middle of a topic that is very important to you and someone else has a different view. My tidbit is allow time, lots of time to get to know the other persons point of view and only then to express your point sloooowly.
