Handling with Fear
~You first have to know what you are scared of, then talking about it with a person you trust can give you a new image of your fear.
~ Some fear can be healthy and natural, but when it is irrational and uncontrollable than you should consider it a problem.
Dealing with Guilt
~ When you feel guilty about something, try to admit your mistake to the person you hurt.
~ Discussing the situation with your family and friends can also make you feel better.
~ Sometime the situation may not be in your control.
-But if you feel guilty about it anyway, than you should view the situation under circumstances in reality and honestly so it would help you see that you were not the one who did it and you should not be guilty.
~ Some strategies to control your anger are:
- get some relaxation
- focus on your goals
- aviod words like "never" or "always"
- get better communication
- solves your problems
- be humorous
