    This is the last time I let my emotions overtake me. Or takeover me.

    Is it correct to say:
    This is the last time I let my emotions overtake me and get hold of me. Or

    This is the last time I let my emotions takeover me and get hold of me.

    I tried to edit the title but I couldn't. "I" should be capital.

    Let emotions get the best of me(control me).
    I am not a teacher.

    The phrase in BrE is "...get the better of me".

    Re: This is the last time i let my emotions overtake me. Or takeover me.

    How about, "I am not going to let my emotions get hold of me?" Is it natural or grammatically correct?

    I edited it for you.
    This is the last time I allow my emotions to get the best of me.

    Sorry somehow I didn't see the responses when I replied!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
