    Good Mood to Bad Mood In to 60

    I'm trying to figure out if the reason I'm feeling the way I am is because I am ultra sensitive to others energies or if I am just a moody person. For instance.....Most mornings I am happy and chipper even though still drowsy, I come to work and start my day off with a smile...

    It Sucks

    I think I would be happier if I didn't let every little thing bother me. I find myself getting irritated or pissed off very easily. I wish I could just go with the flow more.

    Apologising...

    Things someone might say in passing, or something they might do... Maybe something I did that was stupid, or hurtful... I tend to let them get to me, and they usually linger around. I'm constantly replaying it over and over in my head, thinking of other ways I could have/should...
