When you are sad or overly-excited, you should try to let go and move on instead of just getting angry and doing something like throwing things. But, it's not easy to just let go. It is a behavior that you have to shape. Shaping is when you reinforce successive approximations of your ultimate goal. One way to let go and move on is to talk to yourself. Say, "You need to move on". Another way to cope would be to use a strategy, like taking deep breaths. When you let go and move on, people around you are happy. When people are happy and proud of you, that can positively reinforce your behavior.
