Here’s some pretty up front stress management techniques:
Stop wallowing in the slop and feeling sorry for yourself and get up and do something! It’s been a rough day. I presume it’s been a rough day for lots of people. I would give a million dollars, if I had it, or all that I had, to be where I was last Janurary 4th and not step off the path and fall. My life is changed forever.
But combine that mistep with some inept doctors and here it is – a done deal.
I have accepted that. I am adapting to all that I will never be able to do again, and now that I am six months after the surgery – I have to reappraise my goals and my own destiny.
We all have choices to make. That first piece of advice was for me too. Waa waa I have it so rough. Well, I do, but I also have it so good. I have a warm bed to sleep in, and there are people that love me. I am able to pet my dog, drive my car, and sit in the warm sunlight. My husband accepts my disabilities and that is huge!
So with this little pep talk I will finish the thoughts of this post and get up and do something. No one can change your life except YOU. You can be the master of your destiny, at least in response to life. Choose well as you never know when things will change – and that you can be sure of – change.
Second up front piece of advice. STOP YELLING AND SCREAMING AND ARGUING. IT IS ANNOYING, IT IS USELESS, AND IT RESOLVES NOTHING.
I find arguments heat up when alcohol is involved, so make a point of NOT fighting when drinking. That is VERY URGENT. Alcohol causes violence that in turn cause unforgiveable acts.
It wasn’t the industralization of man that is the ruination of man. It is the rampid and increasingly acceptable level of alcohol that is consumed by man.Besides, even without alcohol – yelling and screaming and fighting is just the biggest waste of time ever! We could all die in the next five minutes by some horrific incident.
I am going out smiling! Don’t waste your time, and don’t diminish someone else by screaming useless things, you probably don’t mean, in their faces.
TAKE A TIME OUT. Most things people fight over are VERY unimportant- many people can’t even remember why they fought in the first place. Take a time out or walk away. Don’t open your mouth if it’s not worthy of you!
