I had a friend who once read a status of mine , incorrectly interpreted it and then started writing aggressive comments on way wall. Because i was in control of my emotions i decided not to answer him right away and to take my time thinking of a good reply but before i even completed thinking i found that this friend blocked me.

This is what lack of emotional control can lead to. Irritability, impulsiveness, unrest, bad feelings and even worse guilt.

Step by step for controlling your emotions

Controlling your emotions is possible, Here is how you can do it:

  • Think wisely before taking a decision: Take your time before taking a decision and if you are not constrained by time then its even better to sleep on it. By giving yourself more time to think you will be more in control of your emotions
  • Resist the urge to act right away even if you feel like it: In order to be able to control your emotions you must learn how to not let them force you to take impulsive actions. This can only happen when you learn how to react after taking your time to think
  • Always have plan b: sometimes a person might take an action then lose control of his emotions if he didn't get the results he expected.

  • Seek explanation and evidence before you take actions: One of the things that can let you be in control of your emotions is to seek explanation before you take actions.
