Were you ever so mad that you wanted to shout? Or maybe, you were very nervous because something bad happened? Think of a time when you had strong feelings. How did you calm down? If you were mad, maybe you talked through your feelings. The other person listened, and then you both felt better. If you were nervous, a friend might have told you about a time when they were also nervous. Then, you were able to move on.
Emotions can be very strong sometimes, but there’s always a way to get over it. When a person gets over something, they stop having strong feelings. Sometimes, something happens to make the situation better. Or perhaps, a lot of time passes, and you don’t feel the same anymore.
