Control Your Emotions
When you realise you’re hurting, it’s critical to calm down right away to prevent your emotions from getting the best of you. The easiest method to accomplish this is to remove yourself from the situation and take the necessary time to calm your emotions and settle your mind. This interval of separation will keep you from making rash decisions concerning the problem. Maybe things aren’t as they appear. This separation will, at the at least, help you prevent more argument that could potentially worsen your emotions and/or your connection with the other person.
Make sure you understand exactly what happened
Now that you’re alone, it’s critical that you take some time to reflect on what has just happened. Try to figure out what happened, what the person said or did, and how events unfolded. Furthermore, consider your own behaviour, reactions, and current feelings. These questions will assist you in determining what is happening on the surface. Your upset feelings, on the other hand, may go a little deeper than surface level experiences. For example, your sentiments of hurt may be the result of a series of incidents that occurred over a period of time rather than a single occurrence.
Resolve Your Hurt Feelings
After you’ve given some thought to the incident, now is the time to approach the other person in order to resolve your hurt sentiments and possibly clarify any misunderstandings. Perhaps you’re perceiving things incorrectly and misinterpreting the person and/or situation. The key is to be open to new options and eager to completely comprehend the other person’s perspective and actual intentions. It is critical to constantly think before you speak while approaching the other person about this situation. Don’t say something you’ll come to regret.
