You’re Never Upset For The Reason You Think – The Cure For The Common Upset
“You get irritated in the long line at the movies, but it’s not really about the people in front of you; after all, you don’t even know them.
You exchange harsh words with your spouse about the grocery bill, yet underneath the argument lies something more significant than the cost of premium vitamins and gourmet potato chips.
You find yourself in an upheaval at work when someone you know is let go—and although you feel pity for your co-worker, there’s a deeper, more personal anxiety nagging at you.
