Don't allow anyone to live rent free in your mind.

“It is possible to get really mad about something and still be in control, Mum"

asked my 16 year old this afternoon, and he goes on....

 "Either you control your anger or your anger controls you. Anger can be a great motivator or a great destroyer, which do you prefer yours to be?”

Hmmm let me see.....

“IF you are angry and in control of your anger, then you are angry on purpose.  
When you are angry on purpose, or for a purpose, you are in control. Being in control of your emotions is the point...” said I

Never get angry except on purpose. To many people, this sounds ridiculous. After all, why would you get angry on purpose, isn't anger something that just happens to you because of something that happens outside of your control? 

No, it actually isn't.

You make the decision to get angry. 

Only you decide how you will respond to the things that happen in your life. 

If you aren't in control of when you get angry and when you don't, then you have given your power away, and are letting your emotions control you instead of you controlling your emotions.

This is a dangerous position to be in. 

You should decide when to get angry. 
You should control your life, not your emotions.

Please remember this,
"a single moment of misunderstanding is so poisonous, that it makes us forget the hundred lovable moments spent together within minute."

I think it is time for you to start using my most favourite word - 'NO' now...it is the MOST powerful word!
