At such times, we need to calm down and take control of our emotions, rather than letting them take control over what we do. Sometimes, we don't even know what we're feeling. During moments of such confusion, we say and do things we might not want to otherwise. If you are going through an emotional upheaval, you need to calm down, sort out your thoughts, and then think straight. These quotes will help you do just that!
