    It is very important to keep all of this in check as it could affect your relationships with others and your effectivenss at work. One of the hardest things for people to do is to come to the realization that there are some things they can do and some things they can't. Once you start realizing there are some things out of your control, you start to have some peace. But you have to make sure you've done everything you can before thinking there is nothing more I can do.

    I used to be somewhat emotional when I was younger, but as I got older I started to realize that TIME is the magic healer and the great dissipater. Over time, any worries you have, any hurt you feel will at least slowly but surely go away. If you can remember that, it will go a long way to helping you get over all of your negativity and hopefully, focus more on the positive side of things.

    I think it is less important to keep it in check, and way more important to find out why it makes you feel that way. When I have anger or any negative emotion going on for a while, I always take the time to ask myself what's going on. What would I have to believe in order to perceive anything this way? It is extremely revealing and it is helpful in finding out where we perhaps have a flawed perception of things, and where we have limiting beliefs that don't serve us.

    What I often notice is that I tend to take things personal which could easily have nothing to do with me. For example, when my son makes a mistake and I'm the one stumbling into the mess, it is easy to think he did it TO me, but most of the time, he might not have thought a thing and just did it out of negligence or lazyness. And in all of these cases, my anger and my negativity show me very important information about myself and give me the opportunity to adjust my own perception of the world around me.

    If there is something that you truly desire, in the material sense, it is created instantaneously and all you would have to do is extend your hand to possess it. The moment you have any of these emotions, and you succumb to them, you create a block to any and all manifestation. It is simply pushed it away from you.
