Halfway to the weekend!

Thankfully, we have made it to the halfway point of this week. How has your week been up until now? I hope your week is going well and you are excited we are getting closer to a long weekend, which I know we all need😊! I do not have anything planned for the long weekend but am looking forward to not waking up early for three days! Honestly, my week has been a little frustrating, so I am in desperate need of a break. My frustrations this week surprisingly enough have not been working-related!

I am curious when you get extremely frustrated and belligerently angry, how do you handle those awful feelings? Considering my damn truck decided to give me a hard time once again and NOT start, I was furious Monday night. I think it is probably just that I need a new battery and maybe the other week when the truck was acting up it was trying to give me an indication of the issue, but it was infuriating because I was trying to go to the pharmacy when it would not start. To avoid yelling at the top of my lungs or crying hysterically, I dug my fingernails into the palm of my hands for about 20 minutes. Yes, it hurt, but the pain was distracting me from my anger. I know this sounds insane, but that is how angry I was. Yesterday, my hands still hurt and had bruises from where I dug my nails into my palms.

I know that everyone handles their anger and negative emotions differently and there are healthy ways, and unhealthy ways of doing so. The only good thing is that I was not destructive towards anything that could break easily and cost money to fix, I only decided to harm my poor hands when I was extremely upset. I know and have seen when some people get upset, they will break things because they hit an object with massive force, which has never made sense to me. I am still very upset about my truck not working because now I have no way to get anywhere that I may need to go. I think it is more frustrating because working from home and hardly leaving the house, I already feel isolated and like I am on house arrest, so now that my only way to leave the house has been taken away from me, my frustrations have increased.

As you can tell, my week has been mildly stressful because of the vehicle issues. I have never claimed that I handle stress well because I am an intense stress case and worry about everything. I know this is something that I need to work on and improve on drastically, but I have failed so far. Does anyone else worry about things and if so, how do you maintain yourself and try to stay calm?

With today being the midway point to the weekend and we still have a few days to go, I think we could all use a little inspiration. Life is not easy, and we all go through struggles in life, which can make it easier to become anxious. I hope the quote I am sharing with you will provide you with a sense of calm and inspiration to make it through the rest of this week!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you found what I have shared inspiring and that it resonates with you. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as possible. I hope you have a great day and the last few days go by quickly so that you can enjoy the upcoming long weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

  1. Sometimes we find ourselves in a terrible situation and we feel like there’s no way out. Maybe we even feel like the situation is our fault. When that happens ask yourself, what did I do to cause this situation and be completely honest with yourself. I do understand when the situation involves someone we love it’s hard to be impartial and take that first step to stop the insanity. Insanity being doing the same thing and expecting different results. Sometimes tough love is the only way to a new beginning. It’s so important to not only think of the other person but to take care of ourselves through difficult times.
    We all need healthy ways of dealing with anger, frustration and disappointment. Hurting ourselves physically when we’re already hurting emotionally is not the answer. There is a way out. Pray! God is always ready and waiting to listen to each one of us. He knows when we’re hurting and why. Just pray and be consistent with your prayer for help. God will never forsake us. He doesn’t say we won’t have trials and tribulations in our life, but he does say he will be there with us through the these difficult times. He will give us the strength and courage we need to find a solution to our problems. Please anyone reading this, don’t hurt yourself or bring anymore pain to your life. Stay strong and positive and you will find a way to handle the most difficult times of your life. Never forget, there are people out there that love you and will always be there in your time of need. Just remember to reach out and know you’re never alone.
    All my Love & Support Always, Mom!!

  2. I have always found punching a pillow until I am panting and exhausted REALLY helpful. I make a point of visualizing whoever/whatever I am angry with. That way, I physically get all that anger out without breaking anything, without hurting myself (your poor hands…😔😔😔💕) and without doing or saying something I will likely regret. If I am alone, I scream at the top of my lungs while I am at it. I am so sorry you’ve had a rough week so far. Sometimes, life can really suck. I hope the rest of your week is better…xo 💕💕💕
