Dealing With Stuff

How do you deal with the stuff that happens to us all, at any given moment.

You know.  You’re in a conversation with someone and something is mentioned that creates an uncomfortable feeling in you that you can’t immediately shake.

What do you do?  How do you react?  Are you able to think logically and decide how to handle the situation without it bugging you and disturbing your well-being?  I’m talking specifically about something that affects you alone, not the person to whom you are having the conversation.

Recently, I had such a situation occur.  Without going into great detail, the information I was getting from this person affected me in a way that surprised me.  I became upset to the extent that it really bothered me.

What did I do?  I knew I needed to talk to the person who could give me information that I needed to answer my questions and allow me to make a good decision about how to proceed.

Well, after a short time, I composed myself, made that phone call, and proceeded to put the whole thing out of my mind, until I could actually talk to the person.

I wasn’t put off by the voice mail phone tag that ensued a couple of times.  I was able to decide that when the conversation takes place with the other person, at that point, I will decide what to do next.

It’s so important to have our emotions under control.  Take control in those situations and make sure you do the best thing for you and those around you… Be in control of your mind, self-talk and emotions!  That’s personal development!

What do you do in this type of situation?  We all encounter them!  Would love to hear from you.
