Very good suggestions on controlling. Any of your suggestions can work. We as humans often want to act out our emotions too quickly. You may hurt others doing so but it can be possible that harm finds you as well. The world we live in unfortunately is dangerous and acting quickly on anger to especially a stranger can provoke violence.

The best advice you can give is “Think before you speak.” Some words after they come out are irreversible and cause a great wound, so it is better to learn to control ourselves and to think of any word before we say it.
