In our daily lives, we encounter the difference between action and reaction all the time. Action is denoted by calm, rational thinking, whereas reaction is denoted by emotional, automatic, internal reactions to circumstances. Many people think that emotions are what make us human, but they are in fact just a tool. Any tool can be used effectively or abused mercilessly. Emotions are not meant to be abused, but frequently they are, and we allow our own emotions to be mishandled or treated in ways that they shouldn’t be. Life is not a random spattering of events, where things like emotions and external circumstances enter our lives, and we have no control over such matters. Rather, life is a collection of individual choices, and we allow or prohibit things according to our own tastes.
Reaction is something which can be very detrimental. You can react and say things which you soon regret or which hurt people who you do not wish to harm. You can react and cause physical damage to yourself and others without thinking of it. You can react and withdraw from healthy relationships, because your emotional programming tells you to not trust anyone in your life. Reactions can be dangerous things and they can spiral out of control. It is so much better to act, rather than react, and to avoid giving in to emotion at all costs. It is especially important to avoid reaction when dealing with someone who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
