When people become upset they often become irrational. It can be frustrating. For example, two people are fighting and it gets out of control. It could be a couple, friends, or even people out on the town. Once they begin losing it and the violence starts they become irrational. They cannot keep their speech under control let alone their physiques. Married couples often have foolish fights. In many of the old TV shows the wife is jealous a fair amount of the time. She literally becomes irrational. Even after the husband proves he hasn’t been cheating, gambling, drinking or spending money recklessly, she still doesn’t believe him. She makes accusations that are unjust and just plain wrong. Sure there are plenty of men who lie, cheat, gamble, over drink and over spend, but not all of them. It is a common theme. When children fight sometimes they become irrational. They have heard their parents or older siblings so they copy them. Once it gets out of hand, the parents have to step in to stop it. Sadly, the accusations begin flying and it complicates the whole problem. There are also irrational fears. Many people are afraid of heights but do not know why. Others fear fast rides at amusement parts and still others the ocean, rivers or lakes. Overcoming these fears is not always easy and many individuals never achieve their goal. Of course, fears of snakes, spiders, alligators and large animals are justified. A lion, tiger or bear can destroy you in an instant. Just the other day they found a woman inside of an alligator. For a brief period I lived in Florida and the alligators were just busy along the waterways. Many small dogs disappeared. It was dangerous. The smart move whether in an argument or possibly a disagreement that escalates into a fight is to take a step back and regroup. Taking the time to rethink and take a deep breath may quietly solve the problem, don’t you agree? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
