The first ‘C’ of mindful mood management is ‘compassion.’ Compassion is a re-examination of our core values by asking ourselves two questions, and answering honestly. The two questions are:
- What am I trying to accomplish by behaving this way?
- Will my actions and behaviors achieve what I’m trying to accomplish?
Emotionally aggressive people are passionate people. We care deeply. By channeling that passion into compassion, we can live the lives we were meant to live by focusing on our intentions.
