Think it through to the end before you act out and respond rather than react.
Improper, childish OVER-reactions that impose upon others a necessity to take superhuman adult positions to keep the peace are never justified.
It is not up to others around you to keep the peace when you childishly and destructively act out in any way. You’ve probably already experienced the outcome that IS going to occur again from your pending outburst. Think it through to the end. Is the true end result and destruction to relationships worth the fit or pout you are about to throw.
Think before you speak.
Think before you pout.
Think before you act out.
B.A.M.! Be the Adult in the Moment so you don’t impose an incredible burden on those around you to be the superhuman adult to make up for your anger management and/or childish over-reactions to one of the thousands of everyday life situations that are going to continue coming your way for the rest of your life.
Choose to respond rather than OVER-react. Think of it this way. If you are responding to a medicine most everyone would think of this as a good thing. If you have a reaction to a medicine most everyone would think of this as a negative thing. The same is true for how you handle any stressor or crisis.
Make your choices before you open your mouth or physically act out in any way. There have always been and will always be a huge COST in personal relationships and damaged material possessions if you choose to be the poorly-parented two year old throwing a hissy fit of any kind in the middle of the grocery store aisle. There’s a better way – CHOOSE to B.A.M. and respond – and it IS a choice.
