How to stop anger from spiralling out of control
God knows I’ve learnt this the hard way!
In the past I’ve severed friendships, hurt family, upset loved ones all because I’ve spoken when the red mist descended.
How to stop anger in its tracks
Thankfully as times gone by I’ve learned an important lesson which is what I call The Pause.
The Pause is that time gap that allows your emotions to subside and allow your sense to kick back in again.
By pausing before you react it stops so many problems.
I’ve been enraged by a text message only to read it an hour later only to find it reads completely differently to what I first thought.
How many times have you thought thank god I didn’t send that reply you were going to send?
Life has taught me to pause before I react now. Not always. I don’t always get it right but I’m learning.
As long as we’re learning we’re on track. We’re only human after all. We screw up but as long as we learn it’s ok.
So before you react, send that shitty text or post that reply ask yourself.
What will be the consequence of this? And is that the response that I want?
Learn to pause so your brain can catch up with the emotion.
Have a great day
