Reactions to stressful events or people can be the reason for a downfall. The initial problem/situation will pass, but poor reaction and coping skills can make things much worse. To protect yourself try not to emotionally react. Have a bath, sip some wine, take a long run or walk, dunk your head in the toilet I don’t care. Just don’t make any decisions that could affect you negatively later! Doubling our problems is what we do when over-reacting, so save yourself the added pain and tend to yourself gently in stressful times.
We have the potential to use the imagination to build and live a happy life. More often than not people use their own imagination to make themselves sick with heightened emotions of anger, resentment, worry, fear, guilt, shame even rage. The most damage is done during this time period. Some tend to react impulsively if the emotions take over too much leading to murder, suicide, and accidental death. People can make extremely expensive mistakes socially, emotionally, and financially.
I am sure anyone reading this can remember a time that emotional reaction made a situation far worse than it had to be. What if I said you don’t need those reactions to get the problem solved, and everyone walking away feeling fine?
Don’t Let Your Emotions Get in Your Way!
What if You Make a Permanent Decision on Incomplete information?
Stop. Learn to breathe. Communicate with folks. Find stuff out. Don’t assume as it truly does make an ASS out of U and Me.
My other message is other people’s reactions are not your problem. I don’t care how folks typically respond to urgent situations, it’s not okay to allow yourself to be an emotional punching bag, or insignificant, not important, disposable. People will always try to find a scapegoat for their mishaps, it’s your job to not allow it.
I’d love the same for you. Save yourself from making things much worse, creating real emotional pain. Avoid making ANY decisions in times of stress and anxiety. And please, don’t tolerate someone else dumping on you during their meltdown. Peace and love for all…
