There are times in your life when you may have great sorrow, but what makes it worse is when you are the cause of that sorrow. If you are like most people you have done something at least once in your life that you regret. Most of the time, these things happen because you said something in a heightened emotional state and you didn’t even really mean what you said.
One way to prevent yourself from creating your own sorrow is to take heed to a Chinese Proverb that says, ‘If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow. ’
You can use this wisdom to have success in many areas of your life. One of the first things that will help propel you forward is to learn how to not react to every emotion that you have. If you are a slave to your emotions you will destroy all kinds of relationships ranging from family relationships to business relationships. Also, if you don’t allow yourself to be controlled by your emotions you will find that you will have much more stability in everything that you do. You will be able to deal with things in a much better way because you will be able to do so in a calm and rational manner.
By controlling your emotions you will find that you will be much happier because you won’t have to deal with the aftermath of an emotional reaction to something. Not only that, but you won’t hurt the people you care most about by saying things that you don’t really mean. Take the high road, keep your emotions in check, and live a much happier life.
