I’ve already had two blow outs with people. Normally under regular circumstances that number leans closer to none. (Unless we are talking about my ex.) Lol
Maybe it’s the heat. Maybe it’s that I’m a bit stressed and irritated and just not having it right now. But I literally yelled at my mortgage lenders attorney today, throwing my own housing counselor under the bus and then had a blow out with a (potential) client on top of that.
It’s completely unlike me. I am usually pretty docile and accommodating. I cede because why be combative. It generally doesn’t help. Now, that said, I know there are times for it.
For example, one of my children will only respond to me yelling. She won’t do a thing until I get exasperated and threaten her. It’s like a game to her. So….. I’ve adapted to that mode of parenting her. Not by choice but by need.
It also means she gets away with doing a lot less than her siblings because I don’t want to have to argue with her constantly. So she’s obviously (admittedly) much smarter than I am and one day I’ll need to figure out a new approach that works better.
Here is my morning drama for you to enjoy. Because, well, something good should come from it. And I find it amusing, maybe because it’s so atypical for me. Lol
This is what I sent the attorney. He of course responded dryly, simply repeating what he had already said as if I simply needed to hear it again. 🙄🙄🙄 Do they teach people to have alexithymia* in law school?
And here is the other thread.
I did give him another referral after this but I can’t and won’t recommend people I don’t know or trust so 🤷🏽♀️, he is kind of on his own unfortunately.
And I’m not offering at home enemas to people out of my client roster or outside word of mouth. That’s an unnecessary risk I simply don’t need to take on.
Well. Gonna make breakfast. Maybe go to Trader Joe’s later. I think it’s near 100 out so I’ll stay indoors for now.
Enjoy your day.
Hope it’s more light-hearted than mine.😝😒😂
*The core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relating. Furthermore, people with alexithymia have difficulty in distinguishing and appreciating the emotions of others, which is thought to lead to unempathetic and ineffective emotional responding.
