Have you ever asked yourself why you get so irritable?
When, all of a sudden, you feel so annoyed, or angry, or maybe upset that you could scream, cry. Tell everybody around you to just Fuck off.
It comes out of nowhere.
Ambushing you without warning.
One moment you think you are fine. The next you could strangle every person who wants something or dares to even talk to you.
The pressure in your chest chokes your breath and your brain screams: “Everybody just shut up!”
And it’s not like you at all.
You don’t usually snap at people. Or hurt them. You aren’t always so over-emotional or hyper-sensitive.
And you sure as hell don’t normally swear.
But, in this very moment, you can’t help it. It feels like you are possessed. It’s surreal.
And afterwards, when the short-tempered storm has passed, you feel so embarrassed. So guilty for being awful to the people in your life. For fighting with your partner, making the kids cry or causing your co-workers to retreat with this look of judgement in their disbelieving eyes.
You lost it.
Now you have to deal with the damage. And the shame.
You feel like you can’t live with yourself. You beat yourself up for being a terrible, emotionally unstable person. Lay awake at night seeking an explanation for your mood swings. Wrecking your brain.
Why do you become so irritable, out of the blue, without reason? What is wrong with you?
When the answer is: Nothing. Nothing is wrong with you.
You are just neglecting something essential.
