I have come to realise that in life, we are always given a choice. When ever something happens, we can’t choose how we feel about it, feelings are almost always out of our control, but actions are not. Regardless of what we feel, we have a choice to act or in some cases, re-act to a situation. When something bad happens, we feel hurt, disappointed, angry, and that is all okay. But now comes step two- reaction. Here is where most of us go wrong. We make decisions in anger, we say things we don’t mean and we throw things we don’t want to. But is it fair to say that we didn’t have a choice? Personally, I don’t think so. It’s just that we choose the most convenient way to channel out our feelings. In that moment of making a choice, we don’t consider other options. The last time I felt angry, I stopped talking to people for a while and watched an episode of friends- forcefully. I didn’t want to do that because of obvious reasons. Friends and anger don’t go well together but that’s exactly why I had to do it. Also, it really did help me become a little calm. Wouldn’t say it fixed my anger, but it did tone down the intensity. That is what is needed the most- the toning down of intensity. I really hope for us all to make the right choices in bad situations so there are less regrets and less broken-because-were-thrown-on-the-wall phones on this planet.
