Not all intense responses are overreactions.

The problem arises when you start to react in a bigger way than justified.  Overreactions never make the situation better.

Types Of Overreactors
  • Internal: they overthink the things that don't go their way and are unable to put their focus onto something else.
  • External: they yell, scream, or snap back at people when something isn't exactly how they want it.

  • Identify the things that bother you the most (rejection, criticism, or even something that has nothing to do with you).
  • Think about basic contributing factors like lack of sleep, being hungry or thirsty, or being overworked.
