Why is it that we take our bad moods out on the people who are closest to us? We save our "best selves" or our good moods for strangers and then show our tired, grumpy moods for our families. Shouldn't it be the opposite? Our families and friends are the ones that love us and want the best for us. I know we know that they will love us even at our worst, but why would we want to show them our worst? Yet we put this front on for strangers because we care what they think of us? Am I the only one that thinks this is messed up? I know I do this to my husband, kids and mom. So this is my thing I am going to try to work on this for the rest of the month. Giving the people I love the most, the best of me, not what's left over. (Kind of sounds like a song!) How am I going to accomplish this? Obviously by being aware of my actions, but secondly by making sure I work out. I find that if I start the day with some yoga or a run, I have more patience with myself, the kid, etc.
I am sharing this with you to keep myself accountable! So here's to the rest of the month!
