A quick temper spreads fast and can easily be triggered by petty annoyances such as road rage, someone racing to be first in line or encountering disgruntled people throughout your day. Although these types of situations can make your blood pressure rise, you must remember that your inner attitude doesn’t have to reflect your outward circumstance. It’s easy to take unimportant events too seriously. We cannot control what happens to us, but we can control our attitude towards it. It’s the attitude you choose to display that shapes your personality.
