I used to hide the fact that I went ballistic. It felt like an ugly secret that I would occasionally lose it with someone on the phone. I think it’s healthy to be embarrassed about completely losing your cool, but it’s also healthy to learn from the situation so you don’t lose your cool so easily the next time.
The next time you're considering splurging on an expensive new leather jacket or big-screen TV you don't necessarily need instead of saving the cash to put toward a trip to Europe, think twice. Memories last A LOT longer than material things — and science proves it.
A few years ago, it didn’t take much to ruin my day. One bad ten-second interaction with a stranger at the grocery store, on the road, or via social media, and my whole entire day was “terrible”. Ruined by some idiotic person who was just out to get me… or so I chose to believe.
