There are times when we experience emotions that have nothing to do with us. consider you are in a meeting and people are shouting and moving with threatening body language and you find yourself carried in this wave and becoming angry yourself even though you may have nothing to do with the meeting. Another path to receive such a gift is to become agitated or overseisitive after a long time with no sleep or spending a lot of time without food so the blood sugar goes down. The body wants to balance itself and reacts in such a way as to move the stress about either with anger or a compultion to eat or any other drive that is not truely ours. If you feel angry ask yourself why are you angry and what about. If you are hanging in the kitchen picking here and there ask yourself whether you are hungry or simply folowing a craving. The knowledge and understanding when this is the case will do a lot to relieve the stress and the road to balance is easier from there.
