When I'm upset, I mostly like to sleep if I'm at home. And if I am out of the house, I do breath observing meditation.

Lose my temper if I can. Shout, shout let it all out. Unless it's a real trauma in which case I don't say a thing you'll just see me running around the lake and wondering if I could have been more kind to people. Maybe I didn't treat you quite as good as I should.

I only get upset when people lie and betray me.
Once found out sometimes I question the person other times I hold it in but I don't let it go.
It festers because because I never forget.

I usually try to assess what happened and how I may have contributed to the cause of the upset. If I don't think that I was to blame, then that realization usually helps me to move on quickly. But, if I was even partially to blame, then I mentally reprimand myself and may worry about the situation for a long time. If it is something that I could correct, then I'd try to do so (e.g. apologize, repay, etc).

Being upset with myself isn't always easy to get over...sad

At the moment, using public transport triggers my mum grief. I think it's a mixture of having travelled to see her in the hospice and having nothng to distract myself with.

So, if I'm on the bus, I try to fake hayfever. laugh

If I'm at home, I let it all out and analyse my thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Sometimes getting upset is about underlying issues, not the immediately obvious trigger. If I understand, I usually move on without further effort.

Sometimes, having someone to talk it over with is key. Just saying things out loud can make thoughts and feelings more tangible and ready for processing.
