Sometimes it’s just a “too much” day.
You know those days, right? Or is it just me?
The days where you wake up, and immediately can tell that today, this day, will be a hard one. You get ready for your day, and your hair just won’t sit right. Your makeup won’t go on correctly. You spill your coffee on your favorite white blouse. Your pants are just a bit too snug.
You scream, “Why won’t this day just END already?” Do you know those type of days I’m talking about?
When you make it to work, your boss decides on this day, this already tough day to remind you of all your shortcomings at work. Your report was late, your drawer balance was off, your computing skills are still not up to par.
All of the customers you have to see on this already “too much” day are not being helpful wither. They’re yelling. They’re screaming. They’re using every single bad part of their day and taking it out on you. On the one person who is already having a rough day; Panic attacks. Anxiety attacks. Crying fits. Everything feels wrong. Nothing feels right. Everything seems like it’s a mess. Even breathing is hard. Why is life so tough? Why does everything in the world have to fall apart on one day? On this day? Why do days like this happen? Are they just a cruel reminder that, on some days, we need to know that we are not the ones in total control? Is it just a “haha Fuck You” from life?
So, on a too much day, what do we do to bring the calm to storm?
We breathe, or try to. We listen to music. We listen to calming words. If you’ve ever had a “too much” day, you know that calming areas and surroundings are of the utmost importance. We lay down, close our eyes, and we hope, with our microscopic hopefulness left inside, that tomorrow will be a better day.
We hope that tomorrow won’t be a “too much” day.
