'HALT THE CHAIN REACTION'
"Emotional reactivity starts as a tightening.
There's the familiar tug and before you know it,
we're pulled along. In just a few seconds,
we go from being slightly miffed to completely out of control.
Nevertheless, we have the inherent wisdom and ability
to halt this chain reaction early on. To the degree that we are attentive,
we can nip the addictive urge while it's still manageable.
Just as we're about to step into the trap,
we can at least pause and take some deep breaths before proceeding."
