I bet you thought this emotional thing was easy, right? Grant it, for some people it is easy. There are people who are generally laid back and have a handle on this emotional thing. Good for them, but for the rest of us, we need to select our battles. Pay attention to what triggers you. Is it someone taking your parking space, or someone who didn’t say “thank you” for a gift? You are not condoning the behavior, you are just going to avoid situations or have a strategy to move on. Pick another parking place, have a backup, or in case of the inconsiderate gift taker, focus on the aspect of giving without receiving something back like a “thanks."
