Do Not Overreact

We all face stressful and uncomfortable situations in life. Someone said something we don’t like, something untrue, perhaps something that enrages us… But before we lose control, we all have a choice…

Breathe…

We can choose to overreact or we can breathe and walk away, or say something to calm down the situation. Don’t add fuel to the fire or we will get burned.

Escalation is often not the answer and usually only makes things worse, making enemies of former friends or potential future friends. Before we overreact and the devil takes control, always remember to breathe.

Allahumma salli ala sayyidina Muhammadin wa ala ali sayyidina Muhammadin wa barik wa sallim.
