Thanks for taking over the reins for the moment Melanie.
Melanie’s question is
‘WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’VE REACHED THE END OF YOUR ROPE ABOUT SOMETHING YOU MAY FEEL CONFLICTED OR GUILTY ABOUT?’ DON’T WE ALL NEED ‘TIME OFF?”
Ah, I have been pushed too far twice, and both did not end well. The first was a slap across the face to ‘the pusher’ and the second was a cup of hot coffee (what a waste) being thrown over the offending party and me being reduced to a nervous wreck.
When things get too much for me now, I try to take myself away from the situation rather than say or do something I’ll later regret that cannot be unsaid or undone.
This could be walking the dog (or just going for a walk), shopping on my own but not necessarily buying anything as I’m not into retail therapy, having a hot relaxing bath with loads of bubbles and a good book, or baking.
Basically I need to be on my own to sort my head out.
Lethal Weapon 3 holds bittersweet memories of a falling out as we ended up watching it alone at the cinema on separate occasions.
