Have you had a cruddy day at work recently? Did something not go your way? When these disappointments or frustrations happen, who do you take it out on? People at work or your loved ones that had nothing to do with your Bad DaY?
We can all use the reminder every now and then. Don’t take out your bad day on the people you love the most, just because they are the ones that you spend the end of your day with. We can all relate to MoMenTs when we were having a wonderful day and our loved one walked in the door and immediately changed our mood for the worse.
I especially have to ReMemBer this with my kids. When I am stressed my voice ends up yelling when, on a normal day, I would speak to them in softer words. They look at me like, “What did I do!?” and deep down I know that they didn’t deserve the treatment I gave.
So whoever it is–spouse, friend, kid, co-worker–try to bite your tongue and let out your frustrations doing something that won’t bring ThEm down (go on a run, pound into a pillow…whatever you can!). I guess I am writing because I need this reminder more often than I’d like to admit!!
