“It’s not how many times you fall, but how many times you get back up”
At some point in our lives we have all faced/facing difficult situations. This can bring an enormous amount of pressure. When things don’t go your way, how easily do you lose your cool??
I used to get really upset when things didn’t go how I wanted them. 😤Now with personal growth and maturity I have come to realise that there is no point forcing things that are not meant to be. After all everything happens for a reason right?! When faced with issues that are beyond my control or if someone pushes that button that will leave me raging I can just walk away and take time out by myself to process and most importantly pray about it.🙏🏾
Anger, impatience and just being a hot head will take a toll on not only yourself but others around you. It will eventually wear you down.
So to help you along this journey of personal growth. I share with you some tips on just how to keep your cool in any situation.
Don’t react straight away
Reactions can cause situations to be worse than they are, especially if you are angry. Try to stop yourself from reacting too soon. It can be hard to do this if you are the type of person to just go off in the first instance. This will be a working progress doing.
Remove yourself from whatever it is that is allowing you to lose your cool. This saves time wasted on the repercussions of you blowing up and probably saying or doIng something you may regret. Just walk away with your head held high. Keeping your cool will make you appear more powerful and your so called opponent looks like a crazy ass!
Call a friend
Everyone has to have that someone they can just pick up the phone to and just vent, vent, and vent. They don’t even have to say anything apart from answering the phone. Just go innnnnn and get it all off your chest.
Arguments left unresolved can ruin great friendships and relationships. No one is perfect and I believe everyone deserves a chance. Reasoning through a situation can help to keep both parties calm and collected.
This is the ultimate tip. Becoming all worked up, comes so easily to some and shooting off their mouths and saying completely inappropriate things at the time of being angry. I’m guilty of this too. However like I mentioned earlier with personal growth I have learnt the power of prayer and accepted that God can deal with situations better than me, which will encourage great peace of mind.
What do you do to stop you from losing your cool???
