We couldn’t go past how accurate it is that Andy Puddicombe said; “We may not always choose what happens to us in life, but we do get to choose how we respond to things”.
The way in which we respond to things impacts the outcome of the situation.
Some things you can do before responding, is to breathe and build in a pause – count to three – move to another room or even ask to hold the conversation for 5 minutes and then come back together if you know that you can’t respond in a certain way just yet.
It’s important to remember that all emotions are ok, but not all behaviours are.
