Learn to be rational in unstable moments

When feeling stressed and as having lost control of the things, try taking a moment of break. Then, think reasonably about the cause of your behaviour and calm down as much as possible. Furthermore, be compassionate towards yourself: for every single issue there is a solution.

Be compassionate

When the ones around you lose their patience and start taking it out on you regarding things only they are responsible for, show compassion. Being compassionate towards other always goes a long way. And it almost always pays off, as when the storm has passed, people remember who helped them patiently.

The three reasonable responses

Whenever you meet someone else in distress, make them go through the below filter in order to get to the root of the issue:

  • How can I help?
  • I am sorry things did not work out as expected
  • Please take your time to think about all this and let me know if you need me
    It might not make any difference to you, but it will mean a lot for them in these moments.

If you are afraid to be forthright in your questions, then the fear itself is letting you know that your fear of rejection may be in charge -- which means you have more inner work to do.

Life clutter builds up

We are constantly invited to do something, think something, experience something or buy something.

For every social event or task we say yes to, we run the risk of overfilling our lives. It may leave us feeling overstretched, overtired and overwhelmed.

Inability to say "no"

There is often an underlying fear that prevents us from saying no. Perhaps we fear that we are not good enough. We find the compulsive "yes" might help us feel better. However, we cannot continue living at this pace.

We need to ask ourselves why we continue to do the very things that make us unhappy. Self-restraint and missing out are vital for our well-being.
