TOPIC: UNIVERSITY OF LISTENING!

A wise man once said, “Think before you speak, and before you think, read.” Don’t just read books, read people and read situations!

Sounds familiar? As 2018 ends, be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to wrath! Never let anger control you, rather control anger. How?
