First of all, make it a point not to react to any negative situation immediately. No person can reach a sound judgment in a state of mental disturbance. So, try to postpone the reaction. After that instant stage of being upset is over, come to that situation to handle it wisely. A negative emotion always clouds our thinking, so, don’t ever show your reaction or take a decision when you are upset.
Then make a strong determination not to be carried away by criticism. Just wait to calm down yourself and find out the reason of that criticism. If that reason sounds good to you also, try to eliminate it in future and improve yourself. It is for your own good. If it is out of jealousy only, be happy that you have something positive to be jealous for. Try to be friendly with the person who is doing so, to melt the jealousy.
Be bold enough to communicate effectively, when you feel you have to say something. When life presents you such situations, act prudently and say the right things at the right time to the right people.
Don’t keep on accumulating the negative emotions, as it is only the accumulated emotions that erupt like a volcano and produce dangerous results. Handle these negative emotions as they arise and free your mind once the negative state is over.
For using all these tips, the best aid is to assign regular time daily for meditation and physical exercises or walk. You can also be an asset for your family and for the society.
