17 Jun

There are days that the stress of my job overwhelms me.

Today is one of those days.

I’ve removed myself from the office to sit on some steps outside for ten minutes and calm down. My head is thumping. My heart is pounding. I feel an intense, itchy need to scream.

I can’t help but feel that if I had gone home to someone last night, or woken up with someone this morning, my stress from yesterday wouldn’t have carried over into today.

As it is, there’s no release.

I’ll be a wreck by Friday.

    sometimes you do just have to scream.

    Sorry to hear your work has been stressing you out. I’d encourage you to find your own release, and screaming is a perfectly fine way of doing it 🙂 Ice cream, wine, a kickboxing class, a silly comedy, a hot bath, anything! If you feel you need a person to help you through it, vent to a friend. Something to consider: sometimes having a person to come home to can add to the stress. Coming home to the quiet sanctuary of my home after a hectic day dealing with people at work can be quite refreshing. I suppose it’s all a matter of perspective, but don’t feel you can’t do it “alone” until Prince Charming comes along. You’ve got this!

      Oh I know. I’ve been doing it alone all my life. Ice cream and wine definitely help. But sometimes it would just be nice to not have to go it alone.
