Dog controls angry human

If you let a yappy little dog upset you then you’ve given that yappy little dog power over you. You’ve given a little dog power over your emotions. Just think about that for a moment. Horrifying and stupid, isn’t it?

Likewise, if you let people upset you, the you give them power over you. You give them power over your emotions. Do you really want to give them power over you?? Really?

If you say it’s their fault for making you angry or sad or whatever, you’re wrong. It’s your fault. Sorry to say it but I had to learn this too. I was my fault for letting other people control me.

Take a deep breath or two, relax, smile and remind yourself who’s in control. It’s hard to be angry when you smile.

I’m a firm believer in the power of positive thinking. Give yourself a positive mantra and say it again and again and again. Science shows that it works. But it takes practice.
