Just letting it all out

Friday, August 16, 2013

It has been an up and down kind of week. I had two really positive days and then today wasn't very good at all. My sister, who is 7 months preganant and short tempered to boot, decided to lose her temper today. I got flooded with angry texts and accusations. After the accusations, I realized she was having a stress induced outburst and I was a good target for it. I was really upset and hurt about it, but I've had time to digest all of the things she said and I know she was just unloading her stress and anger on me. I don't have to let that make me feel bad, since I didn't do anything wrong. It's not the first time she's had an episode like that, but goodness it sucks to be receiving all that. I figured since I was already emotional, that I should go ahead and watch P.S. I love you. I had a pile of tissues after it was over. I do feel better after getting a good emotional purge.

    Hey... you know what I read in your blog? You didn't eat over this. Moping, well, yeah.... but that didn't last long either.

I'm proud of you. :-D

    I think it's great that you can recognize the outburst for what it is and remember to not take it personally. Not that it makes it suck any less. Good for you!

    It's tough when you get that from people you love. My youngest brother flipped out on me once and I felt devastated. I'm glad you handled it well though. It's so hard not to retaliate.
