Keep calm when handling difficult situations with others
While conflicts may arise in our everyday life, it is a serious offence to cause grievous hurt voluntarily to another person.
However, no matter the circumstances, do try to settle all issues in a calm and civilised manner. We mustn’t resort to violence to vent our frustrations.
The last thing we’d want is to get into trouble with the law due to an impulsive act.
