So what do I do when this happens? I wish I could say that I don't let it effect me but I often allow it to wreak turmoil on my emotions and get in the way of my choices for a day or so.
The actions of others are out of my hands, the only person I can control is myself, this means I am responsible for my choices and my emotions, why are those darn emotions so hard to control? When someone lets me down, if I let their actions, which were never within my control, ruin my day, then I am relinquishing control of my life to those who surround me.
I am writing this for anyone who is struggling through a situation like this but mostly to myself as a pep talk to remind myself that I can only control me and love others for who they are, not for who I wish they were. Wish me luck as I battle to take control of my emotions.
Have you experienced something similar and how do you deal with it?
