I am trying to change this bad habit I have that when somebody upsets me I will turn around and snap at everybody all day because I don't know how to get the irritant out of my system.

Really I'm just scripting the perfect retort in my head that I wish I could say back to the person who upset me, but since I can't say it to them, it keeps me on high alert to snap at everybody else.

How do I learn to get it out of my system or just let it go on my own? Any tips or tricks to tell myself? Especially when I have to continue to be around and be nice to people I care about and don't want to snap at, so I can't just seclude myself until it passes.
