What do I mean by that? When we get emotional about any issue, we tend to react. We take things personally. We are being sensitive and react emotionally instead of stepping back and thinking clearly about the problem at hand. We make rash decisions instead of reasoning calmly and carefully, and then acting responsibly and appropriately.
Once we are fully engulfed in our feelings we no longer think reasonably or rationally. Instead, we blow everything out of proportion. This vortex of negativity and wrong feelings will suck us into a deeper, darker state of mind.
Therefore, let us take a step back and observe before making a crucial decision. Let us think wisely and caringly about what was said and done and only then react in a thoughtful and loving way.
