As human beings we always try to hide your emotions and appear calm, we let the anger built inside us but one small incident leads to an outburst of our emotions.
We as moms always want to portray as perfect moms but often, on a slippery slope, we get so overwhelmed that our emotional responses become stronger than we are used to.
Instead of dealing with our anger and frustrations we try to hide it and it is a recipe for disaster, we fear if we show our emotions it can be taken as a sign of weakness. But what we do not release is that not dealing with them can lead to panic attracts, anxious and depressed.
In short, one cup of spilled water gives us a headache, child whining will cause us to yell. A slight traffic jam will make you angry. This is not because we are crazy or we love to stay angry all the time, this is because we have not processed our emotions.
What can be done:
• Have a good cry, scream out loud, take a vacation or have ‘ME’ time. In short, find time to do things which makes you happy.
• Catch up on your sleep, take rest and do not feel guilty about leaving unfold laundry or dirty dishes you can do it later if possible hire a helper.
• If you are in depression get help, see a counselor, talk to a friend. Do not ignore it.
• Learn to say ‘NO’ it is not necessary that you attend every dinner party, every function you are invited, committee meetings. It is okay to say no.
Remember there will be good days and bad days but the key to handle our anger is to take things slow, the dirty laundry, moping the floor, dishes can wait. Taking a little break won’t hurt you.
