15 Quotes To Make You Calm The Hell Down When You're FREAKING Out

Quotes, Self

It's time to take a deep breath.

It’s hard to do the mature thing sometimes. We know what we SHOULD do, but what we WANT to do always seems to win out in the end. It’s a truth all of us know too well — someone does something to piss you off and instead of just walking away from the situation, you let him or her have it. "They deserved it," is what you tell yourself to justify your actions.

But when we let our anger get the best of us, we tend to say things we really don’t mean — and the wrong combination of words can ruin a relationship in no time.

What’s worse is that we always seem to hurt the ones we love in the most unkind way — we know just what to say to cut them the deepest. So in the end, any situation can be resolved with a calm, cool head.

But let's admit it — avoiding fights is easier said than done. There’s a reason revenge feels SO GOOD.

Getting back at your cheating ex by throwing a vase at his head, cutting up his clothes, lighting said clothes on fire and throwing them out the window as well as taking a golf club to his beloved car are ideas that have probably crossed your mind. Acting on them would definitely (probably) feel good. Hell hath no fury like a women scorned

But at the end of the day, your feelings of hurt and betrayal would still be there. So what good has revenge really done you? (Not to mention that he might file charges against you ... ) 

Breathe and just remember what John Lennon once said, “Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.”

Take these wise words of wisdom under advisement too next time you have those strong feelings of hate and anger. 

We all have the power to be GREAT.
