Good day Fellow Mylotters, Since the new year has just begun so I don't want to feel mad about anything. As much as possible, I want to control my moods and have the patience in every situation. However, as time goes by, situations that passes by pushes me to be angry. Just like now, whenever me and my housemate cross our paths, he is always in a ill-tempered mood. And if you look at his face, his facial expression will tell you indirectly, put yourself on side or else I don't care if I bump you. And this gesture keeps me alarm. As I don't know if he is really like that or he is just doing it purposely. Hence, whenever his older sister is around, he is not like that. And you can see that his patience is really unfathomable. But he is, at the opposite when his older sister is not here.

Do you have an option with regard to your housemate? Can't you just kick him out? Well, if you can't, then the best way is to just ignore him, go about your own tasks and not be affected by his foul mood. If his purpose is to get your ire, then you are actually giving me his prize by reacting.

good day to you ccmacarayan, if i only i have the option to choose a housemate, then, i would definitely do that. however, i don't. so i guess, i need to dwell on his attitude. and perhaps, i will just concentrate and focus thoroughly on my task so i can be able to ignore him. or else, my day will be ruin.

The better way is just to ignore him. Someone can irritate us even without knowing and wanting it. Or better, tell that to his sister for her also to know her brother's behavior. Or confront him if necessary so that you might know why is he doing that with you.

hello there, as much as possible, i don't want to confront him, as according to his younger sister, this is just a normal attitude to her older brother. so what i am doing is just putting everything in prayer. for i believed God will be the one to work on this. God knows my heart and for sure, He will helped me to get through with this situation.

Well, I guess you have to talk this things up with him without hurting his feelings. Approach him calmly and tell him your concern.

You need to talk to him about this when his sister leaves. he might very well be upset and want to talk about it too.

according to his younger sister, it is better to ignore him since his brother is always like that. so i think, i will take the younger sister advice.

From my point of view, the guy you are talking about is trying to bully you and anyone else that he sees. but before we conclude something, we need to know the root of the problem and the perfect way to know it is to talk to him. Who knows, he might be going through some situation that makes him feel that way. As long as nobody talks to him, no one would understand him. But when he doesn't want to talk about it and keeps acting like that, be prepared to stand tall to show him that "Hey, im not the kind of person that you can push around".

Its always good to control mood and keep patience as its very very essential.Whenever we lose control over ourselves we not only create problem for us but also for the people surrounding us.Whenever we lose control over ourselves and commit something wrong its like striking a nail against a tin wall.Though we can pull the nail out but a hole remains there.

Our feeling and attitude are very important with us in daily life. So, you should try to control them.
