I like this framing of how we react to things—Is it serving you?

I talked with a friend and told him about the situation. I asked for a sanity check. Was my anger appropriate? Or was I overreacting?

He smiled as he told me, “I think that is the appropriate reaction for what happened. But is it serving you? I don’t think it is. So you probably are overreacting.”
