Dealing with Parents

 
 
 

One night my parents made me really upset.  I really hate being mad.  It doesnít feel good at all.  You know the feeling.  It isnít fun.  While I was in my room, I did the breathing I learned.  I did about five or six deep breaths because I needed a lot of calming down.  Slow breaths in deeply while counting to five.  Hold for a quiet twenty counts and let it out for ten.  It really worked. 

My anger wasnít completely gone but it went down to a really low level.  I could actually think straight and focus on other things.  It feels good when you have control over the way you feel.  Breathing is really good...and smiling helps!
