We like this video because it helps individuals find the issue that may be silently plaguing them at home

We mean they couldn’t even be bothered to treat you with any decency or basic courtesy.

Ajahn Brahm, a famous monk in Australia, shares how we can respond to negative moments and memories in our lives. Often, we get caught up in negative memories, which further thickens our anger. Ajahn Brahm takes a fun spin to approach negative emotions by messing around with them

“Play with these demons, have fun with them.”

Wise Steps

Switching our attitudes toward negative mind states and playing with our perception can easily change us from fear to a calm state of mind. Next time, try personifying that negative emotion and playing around with it!
