A man who was fond of beating his wife at every slight opportunity, was asked why he beats her. His response: "I have a very short temper and I get angry easily. Unconsciously, I usually snap when she raises her voice or provokes me."
The following day, as the man was driving to work, a uniformed army officer stopped his car, for no reason. When he tried to complain or protest, the FEMALE soldier shouted on him and asked him to be quiet. The female officer collected his car keys and commanded him to sit on the bare floor. Uncle jejely complied, without saying "pim".
The female officer tried hard to provoke him but uncle controlled his short temper. Suddenly, uncle became meek and cool like cucumber. 😁
After one hour of delay, the officer told uncle to stand up, gave him his keys, and asked him to leave. Uncle said "thank you ma" and got into his car.
As he was about to drive off, his phone rang. It was Pius, his best friend. Pius had been watching the drama from across the street.
Pius mocked him on the phone:
"Fidelis, I thought you said you have anger problems & your temper is very short? How come you were very gentle/quiet when the female officer shouted at you and seriously provoked you? Why didn't you slap her like you usually do to Catherine, your wife?
Fidelis, let me tell you the truth, you don't have anger problem, what you have is RESPECT PROBLEM. You don't respect your wife!!!
Where there is RESPECT, SELF-CONTROL is AUTOMATIC!!! The remote control is not in your wife's voice or emotions. The CONTROL is in your own WILL, your personal DECISION.
Your Relationship will become better, only when you learn to respect your Spouse.
The keyword here is, Respect.
