In our life, we all came across different people with the different mindset in a different places, like they might be our colleagues, our clients, our friends, our family members or even our spouse.
As a human beings, we all have an idea in our heads about how things are supposed to be, and sadly this is what often messes our relationships up the most. At this point of time, we always keep one thing in mind, to be strong, we need to be calm.
We all get frustrated when things don’t play out the way we expect them to, and people don’t behave like they’re “supposed” to. We expect our spouses and children to act a certain way, our friends to be kind and agreeable, strangers to be less difficult, and so on and so forth.
And when reality hits us, and everyone seems to be doing the opposite of what we want them to do, we overreact—anger, frustration, stress, arguments, tears, etc.
So what can we do about this?
If you’re ready to feel more peace and less inner angst, here are some ways, that makes us to remain calm and centered.
1. A Little pause can make things comfortable:
Don’t imagine the worst when you encounter a little drama. When someone is acting irrationally, don’t join them by rushing to make a negative judgment call. Instead, pause. Take a deep breath.
2. Respect others opinion:
Learn to respect the opinions of others. Just because someone does it differently doesn’t make it wrong. There are many roads to what’s right in this world. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
3. Be Compassionate:
We never know what’s really going on in someone’s life. When you interact with others in stressful environments, set an intention to be supportive by leaving the expectations, judgments and demands at the door.
4. Choose to let things GO:
Everyone gets upset and loses their temper sometimes. Remind yourself that we are all more alike than we are different. When you catch yourself passing judgment, add “just like me sometimes” to the end of a sentence.
5. Don’t take people’s behavior personally :
Everyone behaves the way they behave based on how they feel inside. Some people never learn how to effectively cope with their stressful emotions. When someone is acting obnoxious, it’s vital that you remain calm, no matter what. Don’t allow other people to knock you off your center.
6. Talk less appreciate silence:
Don’t fall into an unnecessary argument just because you feel uncomfortable in silence. Don’t say things you’ll regret five minutes later just to fill your eardrums with noise. Anger and frustration begins internally. You have the capacity to choose your response to momentary discomfort.
7. Keeping “the positive” in mind:
At the end of the day, reflect on your small daily wins and all the little things that are going well. Count each small events on your fingers that happened during the day that you’re undoubtedly grateful for.
They are lot of things like this, (you can also add) which keeps us calm during difficulties, and having patience is the best remedy not only for personal life but also for professional life.
Calmness is always going to be a superpower weapon for our growth. Be Calm Be Strong
