Sometimes we allow our emotions to get the better of us. We need to learn to master our emotions rather than being overrun and overruled by them. The best piece of advice I ever got was that I should never make permanent decisions based on passing emotions. I must admit that I still struggle with it sometimes. I don’t have all the answers and am far from being a perfect woman. What I do know is that the more I get my emotions under control, the less erratic and crazy I appear to the world at large. The thing about a Reaction is that ACTION is REquired. This means that the moment the action is complete, coming back from that is very hard. I had an emotional reaction to a gentleman today. He was doing his job, I was doing mine, there was a breakdown of communication and while I tried to make amends with a pleasant disposition, all it did was to show him the crazy in me. Hr is totally perplexed at my two different personas and I’m pretty sure he thinks of me as an erratic emotional woman who cannot get a handle on my hormones and emotions. Sadly, I don’t blame him. So I commit moving forward to clear my reputation moving forward. I will not react. I will not look crazy and I will allow the rational to overrule the emotional. I will put on my big girl pants and grow up. May I get the chance to give a better impression to Jackson the cab driver.
