Then, you might be a bit hooked by the circumstance and some personal development might free you up. At the very least, talk about it with a trusted friend. Journal about it in private. Meditate on it. Then when you have your ‘aha’s’ and fabulous insights, share with the rest of us so we all learn to choose our emotions from moment to moment.
