Dont Get Mad - Write It Down
"Have you just had an arguement with a friend, mum, dad,
brother, sister? Got a bad report from school? or just feeling
down in the dumps?"
If you are feeling any of the above then this article can help
Whenever someone has upset me or im left feeling stressed from
anything, i dont let it wind me up and let it make me mad
because that just ends up causing more problems in the long run!
Instead i take a piece of pen and paper and write it all down, i
pretend i am writing a letter to someone (it dont matter who), i
normally try and pick someone i know i can trust and have a good
conversation with without getting frustrated at them cos they
wont listen.(this person could also be imaginary and not real)
I write down every single thing that im feeling and write it
down as if they was next to me listening, within this letter i
would pretend i was having a discussion with them about whatever
it was that was bothering me, whether its mum & dad constantly
moaning about homework, brothers and sisters trying to satrt a
fight, people at school, friends you`ve had an arguement with by
the time you`ve finished writing the letter to this person that
you really trust (or have made up) you yourself have calmed down
and now that your calm again, read back through the letter and
read what you wrote.
When reading the letter think to yourself was the arguement
really their fault or was i partly to blame?, if i did a bit
more homework would mum & dad give me a break? etc and use this
to better yourself.
This is also good practise for helping you control your temper
and instead of getting mad at someone write it down.
This also helps kids & teens that feel lonely and feel like they
have no-one to talk to since they are still sorting out their
problems but not having to actually confront anyone.
