How you feel and how you react to this feeling is often different, and misunderstood to be the same 

You feel hurt but your reaction is that it anger

You feel scared but your reaction is that of control 

You feel happy but your reaction is that of tears

Only the mentally strong can control what they feel. And that’s fine. It isn’t such a bad thing to feel whatever is it that you feel. 

Here is what is bad, though. 

Reacting the way you react. 

Do yourself a favor and chose NOT TO react the way your heart is suggesting you to react. Pause and chose another reaction instead. 

Surprisingly, the second reaction, even if worse off, never impacts negatively as much as the first instant reaction. 

Our first reaction to things, especially when we feel negative, are almost always wrong! Just wrong. 

First reaction is the worst reaction
