When Enough is Too Much

We are all imperfect human, living in an imperfect world. People tend to incline their paths to wrong doings, to say the wrong words, to hurt others feelings. It is normal. But, when is the time that enough becomes too much?

Anger leads us to do things or say things without us even thinking. Here's a list on how you can calm yourself down, and be able to think without retaliating to what others have done.

Take a deep breath and 'let it go'.
I once read an article that it can really help if you'll take time to breath, pray and say these magic words "let it go". It may sound funny but it's true that it works.

Cry, but then stop crying.
You can have an emotional breakdown whenever you feel so. But don't just sit there for once and cry the whole day. Cry to release the tension and then stop. Wash your face with fresh water and move on, so to speak. It is not that you will totally forget everything but you can move on to the next step without this burning feeling in your heart, because it simply is not healthy.

It is not as bad as you think.
Sometimes, we overthink, like this is the worst of the worst of what had happened. Well, it is not. It will only be worst if you hurt someone physically, or kill them.

Don't decide when you're mad.
People tend to think out of their shell when they're mad. You may say something that you might regret in the future. That's why breathing is the first thing to do. It will balance your feelings and put your thoughts to place.

Read a book, eat sweets or cuddle a teddy bear.
I learned that the best thing you can do is read. Read the bible and study it. It would be nice if you have the actual bible with you. You can read it aloud that you can use your other senses as touch, see and hear.

Yes, we can be hurt sometimes, as this bible verse says, “There is no man righteous in the earth that keeps doing good and does not sin.” (Ecclesiastes 7:20)
