I know I am not handling the stresses of life well when I start to fantasise about going away! I’m not talking about planning for annual leave or the occasional mini break. These things are all good and well to think about. I’m talking about the out of the blue dreaming and scheming of an unscheduled break that suddenly seems like the only way I will ever manage to carry on with all that life demands.
Hey, what do you do when you are super anxious?
When I am feeling worried or overwhelmed I develop unrealistic expectations and I get snippy! I develop unrealistic expectations and get snippy over the smallest of things; over things that are really of no great consequence. Things that didn’t worry me a day ago and certainly won’t worry me in a few days’ time! Suddenly these things scream at me for attention and I feel like they must be dealt with immediately – that’s the ‘unrealistic expectations’ part.
