I constantly work in mastering my emotions It took many years of hard practice, but after many failed attempts I learned to respond rather than react to provocations.

Reacting to a situation is letting emotions take the wheel. It's what we're wired to do to survive.

But not all situations in life are about physical survival, but rather about those interpersonal interactions that can become irritating and crawl into our nerves.

Before reacting I give myself time to feel and own my emotions, breathe and then respond. It took me a lot of practice and it is still a work in progress. Believe me, there are many out there that once in a while raise the bar, but as the old saying says "practice makes perfection."
