Have you ever said something hurtful and nasty, then immediately regretted the words? Have you ever reacted intensely to something, and later wished you hadn't? 

How many times during the day do we show our feelings or bare our souls to people, only to be shamed later? 
All this happens to almost every one of us, every day of our life, all because we don't know how to control our emotions. 
Yes, that's where the problem lies: our emotions! 

Our emotions are often so intense and so powerful that we can't seem to control them. Be it the positive ones like love and happiness, or the hatefully negative ones like anger and contempt, our emotions are better hidden inside us. When we unleash them to the world without a second thought, we might become the reason behind someone's unhappiness and suffering. 

It is extremely important to learn how to control our emotions, all the different kinds we experience and feel every second, every minute, every hour and every day of our lives. Emotions should be controlled and managed, hidden away until we know exactly how to reveal them, and only to the right people. 

"How to control your Emotions" isn't just a book based on researched, but my own journey. After my own life was changed drastically because I couldn't control my own emotions on a very important day of my life, the idea for this book came to me. I researched it, added my own thoughts and experience to it, to make this book a guideline for all the people who, just like me, has trouble controlling their own emotions when the situation demands it.


  • Not so serious

    By Lj from Sj.Ca
    She gives good description of emotions and cookie cutter advice. While she admits she isn’t a psychologist , therapist, or professional in the field of handling emotions. I would just keep that in mind as some of the advice given goes completely opposite of what is taught by professionals in anger management and domestic violence courses issued by courts in my area.

    It did help to sort out and distinguish different emotions I’m going through and the consequences they could have.

    Short easy to understand and relate chapters make this worth every moment. Don’t skip anything, you may be surprised and eyes opened but something.
  • Poorly Written

    By Michael Jordan82
    Soooo many grammatical errors. Hard to get into or digest when I feel as though I’m a teacher grading a writing assignment. Some insight but not worth a second read. Maybe have someone proof read prior to publishing.
