We should choose to be happy over being angry or sad. I didn’t understand why as a child I was so angry. Fast forward to adulthood and I believe, see and understand things differently now.
How many of us react out of anger? We’re quick to get our feelings out so that we may protect ourselves. We usually impart a reaction to something that’s said, and that can be damaging. It is important that we are in control and understand how to deal with our emotions.
When we allow others to influence us, we are giving them power over our emotions, and that influences how we behave in return. When we take control of our emotions, we’re less likely to emanate negative emotions.
We need to own our thoughts and deal with our feelings so that what others say, doesn’t affect our response. Our response is a habit that must be relearned.
