The harder we are on ourselves, the less we change, the angrier we become, the more frustrated we become and the more worn out we become.
When we are easy on ourselves and relaxed, letting things go and being kind to ourselves, the more we grow, the more peaceful we become, the more positive energies we transmit and the more we attract the things that we want in life.
Step away from it, when it is ticking in our head like an unexploded bomb that is about to go off, just walk away, physically and/or mentally. When the steam is rising and coming out of our ears, it is not going to get any better by staying involved.
When something has got to us, go and have a tea, a walk around the block, put on some music, find a funny video on YouTube, go and hug someone and let go.
Let go the instant that you feel you are becoming the reaction to the situation that is arising.
