What happens when change is wrong? When you have no say in the matter? Unfortunately this is all too common in life. There might not be anything you can do to prevent the change. But as with anything, you can change how you react to it.

Control the adrenaline surge that will cause you to react badly by breathing deeply and/or laughing.

Try to get as much information that you can before you react. It may not be as bad as you think. Keep an open mind.

Don’t let anger paralyze you.

And my favorite, use unwanted change as a means of revenge. I can hardly hide my tremendous satisfaction in proving people who don’t budge wrong. [Keeping in mind, though, that often the reverse might happen ;)]

  1. “Don't let anger paralyze you.” –> Good advice. It's true that holding onto anger does more damage to the one who is angry than to the person to whom the anger is directed.
