Something that ticks me off to no end is when people use ‘stress’ as an excuse to feel entitled or to treat others badly.
When you’re stressed, suddenly everything seems like a huge problem? Everything someone does is wrong. Things that, in any other circumstance is not a problem, it doesn’t affect you at all, and was never intended to hurt you in anyway.
But you end up losing it anyway, and making other people feeling just as awful as you do.
Like I am sorry your life is so hard and stressful for whatever reason, but expecting others to tiptoe around you and secretly whisper to each other “oh don’t worry, they’re just stressed. Don’t say anything to set them off” is not on.
You need to have the insight that you’re stressed and that’s why suddenly everything seems unfair and offensive. Not because the world is suddenly out to get you. Just because you don’t have a decent outlet for your stress, does Not mean everyone turns into a punching bag or a chew toy.
If you’re the sort of person who stresses about everything, then please have insight about the kind of person you turn into when you’re stressed. The rest of us are not here to annoy you.
Everyone is just trying to do the best they can to be happy everyday.
Don’t say “sorry I’m just really stressed” and expect people to understand. Because hey, everyone has troubles and you’re not the first person in the world to be stressed or to face certain issues.
Just keep breathin and breathin and breathin and breathin.
And stop being horrible to others.
