Emotions and Reactions

I am not sure if it is day light savings or the fact I have been working really hard that has me feeling so tired. We have been down two counselors and for part of the week we have been down three counselors which means five to six of us have been doing double duty. The work we do is already stressful so adding more patients on our caseloads makes it extremely stressful.

Being tired makes me more susceptible to emotional triggers. I read something on someone's Facebook page and it angered me. Seriously, why did I allow a simple quote on someone's Facebook page throw me off my square? Everyone is entitled to their opinion no matter what I think. No matter how stupid that opinion is. Sorry, I often times struggle with stupid. It is definitely something I have been working on. There are two things I struggle with "people making statements without doing their homework and self-righteous speaking folks with tunnel vision". Again, I am working on it. This is one of my character flaws.

My point is we cannot control how someone thinks, feels or acts however we can control how we think, feel and act especially control our reactions.

Did I mention I was tired?
