Choose Your Mood

Every day you play the role of small time fashion stylist by mix'n and match'n apparel that you feel would suit your emotion for the day. No one forces you to wear that posh red dress and high stilettos or that unpretentious white blouse, blue faded jeans paired with Chuck Taylors sneakers.

Similar to dressing up, you and only you alone, have the power to choose the aura you want to express today. No one can dictate your mood. That's the good news.

The bad news is, unintentionally your mood(particularly bad ones) may influence the temperament of the people you get to deal with.

Grumpy-ness, tantrums and gloomy feelings are no doubt genuine emotions of a warm-blooded human being. No one can judge you for that, because at the first place they have no idea of what you're going through. But guess what? I'm sorry if I need to spill this harsh truth, believe me I also had a tough time absorbing the principle - It's not always about you, your feelings, your emotions. If you think that outburst would settle for what is best and build up your self worth and relationship with others then I don't see anything wrong with it.

I heard a very practical suggestion when you reach the tip of your self-control - have a good set of friends, the real ones, who would accept you when you are at your best and when you mutate into a monster. Friends who can take all your flare ups in life but will not let you dwell on it. Then after exploding all your negative into the universe, gracefully slide and move on.
“He who gains victory over other men is strong but he who gains victory over himself is all powerful.”  --Lao Tzu
You are responsible to the energy you bring into this space. Pick a good one.
