For some unknown reason, I have been feeling irritated and easily frustrated. Almost every little thing would trigger a deep sigh or a complain. It has been an uncomfortable week. And I feel guilty because there are so many things that I should be thankful for. I have been complaining about the littlest thing, such as the paper jam in the printer, the pen falling to the floor, or the coffee being too cold. I mean, I sound sometimes like a grumpy old man, and I am only in my 30s. God forbid that something major does happen. How would I respond then? I really don’t want to know. I wake up in the morning and my first thought is “Back to reality….” instead of being thankful for a new day or a new opportunity to do things better.
I need to learn how to relax. I need to take things lightly. The funny thing is that, being a counselor myself, I encourage my clients to do what I also need to do. Why can’t I apply what I teach? I have done yoga, exercise, and watching movies. I guess my job may be taking a lot of my peace of mind. Don’t know for sure. Any other ideas on how I can relax and stop complaining so much?
