Self Control


1. The ability to refrain from expressing yourself emotionally, physically, etc.

2. Something I do not have.
-------------Example 1.-------------

Person 1: "Today I prevented a murder"

Person 2: "Really! How?"

Person 1: "Self Control"

-------------Example 2.-------------

Jerk: *knocks over your card castle on purpose*

Your self-control: *Desperately trying to keep you from breaking their kneecaps*

Jerk: "You can just rebuild it, it probably didn't take long anyway"

Your self-control: *gone*
