Don’t Take the Bait!
When someone says or does something provoking, they may be baiting you to engage and lose your self-control so that they can control you and/or the circumstance (and say that you’re crazy). Take deep breaths, respectfully excuse yourself from the conversation, and go do what you need to do to feel better. Taking the bait will only lead to you feeling
exasperated and regretful, so DON’T TAKE THE
1 Peter 3:9
Do not repay evil for evil or insult with insult…
