Road Rage

I rarely get road rage (anymore). I don’t drive much; I’m sure that helps. Yesterday, I

came to a 4-way stop, just before a car across from me.

I started to go. So did she.

I stopped so she wouldn’t hit me. She stopped.

I started to go again. So did she.

I stopped so she wouldn’t hit me. She did too.

I started to go again. So did she.

I didn’t stop – neither did she.

I freakin’ LOST it on her.

“BI***! It’s my FU**IN TURN!!!”

I was so mad she couldn’t figure out a simple 4-way stop.
Stress can really change a person.
Stress affects everyone in different ways. For me, I become suspicious of everyone and assume ill will. My shoulders tense and raise up to my ears. I eat comfort food. I drag like I haven’t slept in weeks. Sometimes I skip my period. I gain weight. I can’t concentrate on anything other than my stress. Every little thing annoys me. And apparently, I road rage.

Like said in my last post, it’s ok to feel feelings, but what matters is how you react to them. How does stress affect you? Acknowledging the changes helps me realize when I’m stressed, and take time to decompress. Any good decompressing tips? I apparently need them…
