Sometimes life throws us a curveball and we end up feeling miserable, upset and angry. It can be small incidents that take away our peace of mind or big ones that completely take us by surprise.
Nonetheless, common reactions to an upsetting situation are anger and a feeling of being victimized. Sometimes others let us down, we miss deadlines, come down with a cold and so on.
It feels like there is certainly something outside of us that is responsible for our misery and upset. We feel powerless, and ranting seems to be a way out.
But the more we rant, the more we wallow in this upsetting feeling, the worse we feel. It hardly seems to make things any better for us, let alone make us feel like we’re back in the driver’s seat. How about we try EFT tapping for this?
This EFT script is general in nature, in a good way, so it can be used for a variety of reasons that could be making you feel upset. Pick a situation that stands out in your mind and tap along. Repeat the tapping with other incidents in focus.
