The next time that you are “pissed off” by something or the lack of something, remember you have a choice how to react. To get angry or sad or the Super Chicken way. In my book the first two are understandable but not acceptable.
Yes, of course these responses are unacceptable as there is not one person that I have ever met that aspires to either. “But what about certain circumstances, surely it is necessary and therefore acceptable to get angry or sad then?” I hear you ask rhetorically. Well no, I don’t think so.
Think about it for a second, if we planned well and long enough we could have prepared for most of the circumstances that lead to us getting angry or sad. Sometimes that might not be possible or practical but then that is the risk we take in our life also and these are circumstances and fate that comes with the territory of living.
So instead of us trying to justify our anger or sadness from the circumstances that occur in our life why not consider what Super Chicken used to say:
