Unstable Friendships Anyone?
I'm new here. Not sure what to expect...
All I know is that I'm not sure how to cope. I don't know how to get off this merry-go-round.
Unstable friendships anyone? I can't stand my own temper tantrums and I can't blame anyone else. I do own responsibility here, though. My proclivity towards pushing everybody away is getting old fast. I understand I leave so I don't get left. But is that really the best way to live? Sadly, there's no controlling this locomotive, that I know of.
I don't want to be this way anymore, but I'm not sure which coping strategies to use when it's actually happening. People get tired relatively quickly and I can't say that I blame them, I mean, what's the alternative? Putting up with my immaturity?
The sad part is that I have a thorough understanding of everything that's happening in real time intellectually. I just don't know how to stop the Hindenburg.
Which coping strategies work for you? How do you tame the beast within?
I sincerely wish all of you some form of relief.
