one idea

I heard once of an idea that I thought was good regarding acting out of character from steroids (or other stressors, even). Have a clue word with your spouse or best friend that when you are really not acting the way that you usually would (such that it would otherwise not be something you would do) that they say that word and immediated then you walk away and take a breather from the situation. It could be a silly word–I think the example was hippopotimus or a phrase like “The bull got into the china shop”. It does not really matter except to be a big clue to someone that they are not in character and should take a breathe and step back. It would not be used for little things, but only for things that were going “too far” with the latter depending on the social situation. This can help not to fight with people that you really care about or to keep the fight from getting out of control from saying things that you really wish you had not. Just an idea.
