I Didn't Use To!

Nowadays, I seem to handle life's problems more better! There was a time, not too long ago, that when any conflict or drama happened I would fall apart! I would spiral into a dark pit, and literally curl up into a ball and cry. I couldn't handle much, to say the least! :-o

But now, when I got rid of my depression, it seems like I gained an attitude adjustment too! I still get angry, sad, or upset about things. But now, I can take a step back from those reactions, and just calmly figure out how to solve the problem. And if it can't be solved, I am more able to accept it and just not let things get to me so badly. :-)

My mother sometimes mistake my calmness for me not caring. I do care! But, I'm not going to fall apart over things anymore. It's not the end of the world, no one died, and no one is going to die. It's just a moment, this time will pass. :-D

My dear twin, it's another shared experience and like you I'm better at handling emotionally charged scenes than I used to be.

Great attitude! I think we can all use that reminder.
