When we run into a problem in our lives, no matter how big or small the problem may be, the first place in our brain that processes that problem is the emotional part of our brain which triggers a reaction. From there it goes to the rational part of the brain which begins to process the problem. If we live in emotional extremes, there is a very good chance that the problem will not make it to the rational part of the brain. We simply react emotionally which can cause greater destruction to others and ourselves than the problem ever should have.
So how do we gain victory over our emotions when we run into problems?
