What is the most dangerous part of having a pipe burst in your bathroom.
The damaged pipe itself isn’t a major problem – one merely needs to call a plumber and have her replace it. It is the flooding of the bathroom that is destructive. You can greatly limit this damage if you turn off the water supply as soon as the pipe bursts.
To get emotional is to have a pipe burst within us. It is often our response to that emotion that spirals out of control and causes us to act in ways that we will later regret. We can avert much damage if we simply turned off the water supply.
The problem itself isn’t as dangerous as our response to it. Regardless of the problem, we can always choose to respond to it in ways that limit its damage.
