It's time to get going — but not just anywhere. Think about how you want to act
and what consequences your behavior will have — short and long term.
Then, after your thoughts and emotions have had time to settle, act in the way you actually want to.
Go back to the situation. Choose how you want to act when someone criticizes you.
- What is the best thing to do?
- How would you like to behave?
- Is it different from the impulses you had before?
- Maybe you could try a new behavior?
Write down your answer if you want to.
