Does getting angry/upset make things better or worse?

I’ve always been a believer in keeping a cool head. Letting your emotions get the best of you only hurts you, no one else. Most of the time when we’re angry or upset, the person behind it doesn’t know, realise or care.

So it only makes it worse for you. The heat building up and the tension headaches or in my case, I cry when I’m angry. It can be consuming and paralysing. It can send you spiralling.

When I am upset or angry I write out the situation on a piece of paper or in a word document. It helps me make sense of my what I am feeling. It also can help in moving forward.

I breathe. I take stock and then I react.
