Controlling emotions


Recommended Posts

Hi Latishadaal!


Welcome to Community! I moved this into the General Bullying section and titled it "Controlling Emotions", so people can find this topic of controlling emotions and reactions, easily. Such a great question!


It's so easy to want to defend yourself when someone says hurtful things to you... but have you heard of the phrase "You can't beat fire with fire". You're just adding more flames to the situation.


The most important thing you can do when someone says something bad about you/to you is to remind yourself that you are not the problem. There are many reasons why people say hurtful things, and you are never the reason:




Even if their words hurt you because they've teased you about something you're insecure about-- that's not a problem with you. You deserve respect, no matter what.


Hope this helps!
