Maybe it’s the hormones finally driving me up the wall or I’m finally snapping. By the way, snapping doesn’t mean “losing it”, it just means that I’m finally (at age 24) realizing that this “self-righteous”, never let them see me sweat bullsh*t doesn’t work for reality. We are fragile beings who feel hurt and it cuts like a knife. Being a mother has taught me a couple of things about pain. Its sears, burns and stings like hell but when it’s over (with a few meds or whatever) is is OVER. You can sit and run around the house still screaming but that’s up to you. “Being Strong”, was what some ill-informed psycho made up to circumvent reality. Cry that sh*t out man, get it out so that you are true to yourself in that moment. Be real, and then when it’s over wrap it up so it can heal! Here’s my list of way to get over an owie!
1. Check to see if its broken! It might just be your ego or a serious issues. But if your problem is strictly emotional take a few deep breaths and this too shall pass.
2. Cry it Out! If you have more than two kids you can even cry around them. They may look at you like you’re crazy or they may give you a big hug and kiss. we teach our children affection. They know how to return it.
3. Disinfect it, so it don’t get worse! Everybody has those family members and friends that feel like alcohol on a wound but it makes it better to have a sound mind to help.
4. Get a Binkie!
Okay, first I don’t mean an actual binkie, chocolate, a little wine or a hot Toddie helps. but don’t go overboard.
5. Celebrate! Your human and humans get hurt. The fact that something can bother you soo much means you are a kind soul and instead of ignoring that channel it into something good. (Like me writing now).
This list is intended to add a little humor to the occasional heartbreak, misunderstanding or sour note. If you have a real owie you better go to the hospital lol.
