Don’t turn your world upside down out of anger. Knee jerk reactions are never a good idea and they have not done you any great service in the past. You may discover what you became angry at isn’t accurate, or isn’t the whole truth. Set your anger aside and wait until you calm down before you put any actions into place. Patience and walking away until you calm down is the better course of action today.
You may already be living with the consequence of reacting to a situation first, instead of thinking it through. Don’t make that mistake again. Allowing your emotions to rule your path, whither it’s out of anger or from being overjoyed, can hide important details from your view. Details that if you had paid attention to them, would have altered your decisions.
Take off the rose colored glasses, or give yourself time to let the anger subside. Think things through, make sure you understand what consequences can occur and then decide if you’re willing to live with those choices. If your choice affects others in your life, make sure you talk to them first. They may not be in agreement and you may lose more than you bargained for.
