or like we just want to put our head in our hands,
or worse, sometimes life can just seem overwhelming.
Maybe we are upset because we had a fight with our significant other,
like trying to figure out that new computer program,
or the crazy supervisor that’s always on our back.
Or perhaps it’s that promotion we just can’t seem to ever get,
or something simple like getting behind in our paperwork,
all of which makes us feel like just crawling under our desk.
Maybe it’s the unrealistic expectations we receive about how we should look
or that last few pounds we just can’t seem to take off,
which leads us to be disappointed with what we see in the mirror.
Sometimes it’s something small, like the irritation from being put on hold a really long time,
Sometimes it’s something bigger like getting negative feedback about ourselves that’s hard to hear,
which can lead to the feeling of being attacked,
and wishing we could just blend into the background to hide.
Or perhaps it’s unrealistic expectations from others that we have unlimited energy to do everything,
while internally we feel like we are ready to scream,
Sometimes to cope with life’s pressures we just need to take a step back and re-evaluate,
and spend a little quality time on some of the simple pleasures of life.
For some people that may be enjoying a favorite morning beverage all alone,
Just as long as they don’t go too over the top and regret it the next morning,
and leave incriminating evidence that can embarrass them later.
