    I guess the only people I know

    who can control themselves are some of my cousins, my girlfriend and myself... And other people... I don't know I can't remember. But if you try keeping your true feelings in, it may not end well... I almost lost it a few times.. But I should work on balancing it out....

    I admire people who can keep calm in stressful

    I'm not a yeller, it's just not in my genetic make up. Personally, I find people that yell: Obnoxious, rude, inconsiderate (as to what the harm of their words do), unnecessary, uncivil, undiplomatic and non-constructive. It's to say, right? Especially by me....someone who has no...

    I do admire people who can keep clam in pretty

    much every situation. I am someone who has a hard time keeping calm, I don't know if it is the anxiety, or the hot-headed-woman in me, but sometimes, I am just unable to keep clam, so I really do admire people who are able to keep calm.

    Do You Really Always Have This Wisdom?

    its up to you either you keep calm

    or being in hurry in worst conditions. i think if you are able to understand the situations you can manage it well but if you are not, you behave like a hurry person.
