When They Just Push Your Buttons: 3 Steps To Controlling Your Reaction

Jessica Brest - December 4, 2018

Something I find all too easy in my relationships is that I can respond to something small in an explosive way. Not physically lashing out, but getting suddenly very emotionally upset at what my partner just said or did. That emotional outburst then turns our conversation into an argument. Does this sound familiar to you? Here are three key steps to help you control those damaging reactions to frustrating situations. 


My Friend Is Making Bad Decisions!

Jessica Brest - November 27, 2018

Dear CMR,

One of my close friends recently got involved with a friend group that is influencing him in a bad way. My friend is a Christian, but this group has convinced him to participate in things that the Bible clearly states is wrong like having sex before marriage and getting drunk often. I’m worried about my friend, but don’t know how or if I can talk to him about my concerns. How do I have a heart-to-heart with a friend who is going down the wrong path?

Signed,

Fearful Friend
