You know when you flick your lighter at a rag soaked in gasoline?
And it bursts into a heat you automatically want to drop?
Sometimes we get those moments. And it is not passion that’s ignited.
It is anger.
Our immediate thought is, ‘Must stop whatever made me feel this.’
And many many many of us launch with all that initial flame, into an uncontrolled reaction.
We only think with that burst and we don’t let the fire tone down to it’s more brilliant element; calamity.
Feel that fire, acknowledge it and then wait. Slowly go forth when you feel the heat has subsided- in you still but not enough for you to boil over.
We burst into flames all to quickly. Let’s try and wait it out. We’ll only get better by trying.
Approach the problem when you are calm.
You are more respected if you have yourself under control.
Make your fire healthy , not hazardous.
Make it heart warming, not heart burnt.
