Hot buttons make some people mad, others sad. All of them kick

Dealing with your own hot buttons
Your hot buttons are dormant most of the time. They only come alive
when something hits one of them. The rest of the time, you’re almost

Try replaying one or two especially volatile occasions in your head. Check your emotions as you go along. When did you start to get irritated? Or upset?
