Control Your Emotions Like a Media Player

  • When your emotions are getting out of hand, PAUSE to prevent doing something you'll regret later.
  • CONTROL VOLUME when talking to someone. People are more likely to respond the same way on how you talk to them.
  • Sometimes, the best way to comfort someone is to just put yourself on MUTE mode.
  • When listening to the person you're talking to, you're not trying to figure out how to reply; instead, you're RECORDING to understand.
  • It's hard to forget a memory especially when it really hits you. REWIND and carefully think about where, when, and how to reintroduce the subject.
  • When in pause, step back and FAST-FORWARD to think about the consequences of your actions.
  • Put your thought into SLOW-MOTION to analyze your emotions and figure out the reasons behind it and come up with a solution.
