Controlling Your Emotions
While I was sitting down to write this article, I was hit with a maelstrom of foolishness that sent my blood pressure through the roof. The more I thought about the issue, the more irate I became. It felt like I was about to explode into a demonic rage only the darkest depths of hell have witnessed. All of a sudden, something clicked inside my head.
“I just wrote an article about stress. I am constantly telling others that they are only stressed because they allow themselves to be. What the hell is my problem?”
The more I thought about the issue and the circumstances surrounding it, it was easy for me to determine that I would not allow someone else to have that much power over me. I am giving them so much power by allowing them to control my mind by their actions.
The “problem” was no longer an issue. Stress and emotions are there because we allow them to be there. It was much easier for me to make a mental note of the situation, and treat the perpetrator accordingly in the future. Most people will do or say things just to see you upset or bent out of shape.
