Overreaction is the result of loss of control

Every action requires a response. That response is a reaction. But an overreaction is the wrong response. Overreactions are emotional and uncontrolled. They rarely solve anything. They mostly exacerbate the issue at hand. 

We overreact when we:

  • Feel insecure
  • Feel uncertain
  • Are afraid
  • Have not thought things through
  • Are triggered

Overreactions steal control away from us.
