When you get hurt, it’s important that you calm down before you do anything else. We need to make sure we get more information, and not automatically assume that the action that hurt us was purposeful. Calming Down when our feelings are hurt can help us avoid jumping to conclusions. Thinking of other explanations and getting additional information can help us think more clearly and make better decisions.
