It is so easy to let people get to us and make us feel out of our normal happy, positive self. For sure, there are days when people do things or say things that make us feel bad and we just can’t help feel the way we do. It is easier said than done to continue on as if nothing ever happened. However, we can try to do things to help us stay positive in life.
It is always a good idea to take responsibility of your own actions and reactions. Sometimes the other person’s actions have nothing to do with you. They may have something else going on in their life; that you have no idea about. And then of course you just happen to be there at the wrong time. They lash out at you. Does it make it right? Of course not, but you reacting poorly or taking it personally is really only damaging you. Try to change your mind frame; stay calm and if you want to just walk away. Not forever, come back and talk when you both have had some time to calm down or just some time to think things through.
