Sometimes it's better to step away and be quiet than respond and react. When you step away, it gives you a chance to not regret anything you might have said. It also gives you the opportunity to think about what the best course of action or words you should say after stepping away. So if you need to, step away and think about what you should say, instead of regretting what you said. After all, it's the right thing to do and it models the way for others.
