I realised that maybe I shouldn't have reacted that way because one bad does not make another. I put them down thinking that it would make me feel better. I also realised that I can spend time with people who elevate my mood, not with people who put me down.
I could have used a emotional regulation strategy that could have stopped me from bursting out my feelings in a negative way. I could politely tell them how I feel and walk away from the situation. Being kind is the best thing to do.
I went up to them and told them that I was sorry for putting them down. They realised that they had hurt my feelings since their actions was a trigger for me.
