Feeling My Feelings

I’ve been a bit… shall we say… CURT lately. I guess it’s probably more accurate to say that I’ve been a B!%@h. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve never been in the running for The Most Patient Person on Earth but I have been able to control my curtness to a reasonable degree. Until lately.

It seems like now I feel like I can snap at a moment’s notice. I really thought it was because I’m mourning the loss of Big Mac’s and pie but I think it’s something else. Normally, if I was upset or disappointed or unhappy or ANYTHING I would swallow that emotion and wash it down with ice cream. That’s no longer an option.

Now I have to actually FEEL my feelings.

My disappointment at myself or just the world in general when things aren’t going my way I actually have to process and feel… and then deal with…

This is certainly a new feeling. Does anyone else feel like this?

  1. I love that picture! I have two english bulldogs. Your post is so accurate. I have been coping with the same things along with quitting smoking 5 weeks ago also. It is amazing my daughter hasn’t moved out yet Lol. The weak part of me misses diving into a bag of Dortitos and stuffing my feelings, but the strong part that enjoys seeing the number on the scale move downward and looks forward to a smaller jean size is winning. Love your blog! Keep up the great work 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for commenting! I quit smoking 5 years ago (after 18 years) and I could have NEVER done both at the same time. I’ll keep you in my prayers (and your daughter too) for you to be successful! Your Doritos is my Ben & Jerry’s so I totally understand missing the dive. We can do it!
