Does anybody have any good tips for controlling a knee-jerk reaction? I feel like whenever I'm in a bad mood, or when someone comes out with a topic that I'm really passionate about, I just can't help from reacting.
I've tried a lot of different strategies, from meditating to counting to ten or whatever, but nothing seems to work. Is it possible that I'm just an impulsive person, or is there some other way that I could stop myself from having such a bad knee jerk reflex when it comes to certain areas?
I would really appreciate any advice you guys could give -- thanks.
