Just Trying to Breathe….

I have been trying to be as chilled as possible (because stress kills and I really want to have babies) but people don’t make it easy….

Just another day at the office.

I understand that things (people?) get a little crazy around the holidays. Everyone is trying to wrap everything up before they go away or put together the perfect party, the perfect tree, the perfect whatever.

Haven’t they figured out yet that there is no such thing as perfect?

Sometimes things just suck but you still have to deal- unless you happen to be two years old when you can unload that bullsh!t on someone else.

Stress is tough to avoid in this crazy hustle and bustle life we lead and though I am generally calm on the outside, inside I rage. Some can get away with letting everything hang out- I am not one of them. I just can’t get away with those kinds of antics.

Well, I can’t go into details because litigation may become an issue but I got my first social media slap in the face. I don’t know when I received it but I saw it today.

I was a bit taken aback. I wasn’t sure how to react but you have to admit it is also kind of funny.

As if we need another avenue for high school-like behaviour! I wasn’t afraid of the Mean Girls back then and I am certainly not going to get all worked up over this.

I also find myself in the thankless position of talking people off the ledge at work- or keep them from pushing people off the ledge.

Who is talking me off the ledge?

On the very rare occasions when I unleashed some of the rage, people were dismissive or just scared. Where is my sympathetic ear?

But more importantly, where is the chocolate?

Interestingly, that hit of sugar can help soothe the savage beast, at least temporarily.

But I digress.

What can you do but shrug your shoulders, put your feet up and wait for the dust to settle.

And if the worst thing that happens to me today is being de-friended?

I can live with it.
