  1. I interrupt a lot when I’m excited about saying something in a conversation, mostly hijacking ideas that another could have contributed to the flow of talk and force people to raise their voices and talk over me in order to be heard 😐
    I’m working on this actually

    1. This is a super honest answer shedmyhalo. I have done this, too. It helps to think about how excited the other person may be to share and that holding back a bit is something you give, not something they take. Don’t harness your excitement too much, just interrupt less. (I swear, it’s a bad habit of mine also).

  2. I keep to myself. Or I write about it in this blog. This is why a pen name is great. You can write about stuff you don’t necessarily want those in your life to know about. You can vent. You can make up stories. You can just write out all your pain and suffering. You can make it funny. You can do all kinds of things with it. I try and put a humourous spin on things when I’m done and out.

    But in real time… I keep to myself and listen to music. Because in real life, no wants to hear your whining is what I’ve learned.

    But in conversations, if I have something of value to contribute, I do. A lot of times it’s often witty puns.

  3. My worst is irrational, fractured and somewhat paranoid – liker certain, er hrmmm, political figures. Admittedly, that is generally brought on by a bad medication reaction OR a serious disconnect in my brain. Well, those are the same thing, aren’t they? It certainly makes people withdraw and treat me like I’m broken.

  4. I get frustrated and snappy. But, I’m able to control it so well in a social setting by putting up appearances. Smiling often. I keep my important social appearances very short so I don’t show what’s on the inside and when at home, could readily snap at my kids and spouse then nurse their heads with apologies when I realize how bad they feel. They’ve not done anything to deserve such treatment. I keep away from my close friends to apologise when I’m done, don’t want to complain and whine.

  6. If I’m at my worst I shut down. I can’t think straight, talk right and I feel like I can’t take a breath. Usually I just don’t go to work and avoid everyone. I try really hard not to let my mood affect others by keeping my distance as much as possible.

  7. 🤔 When I’m at my worst? Which means I would be way overly emotional; I call them my “hell hound” emotions. I come across very aggressive in my tone, mannerisms and expressions. Even if I’m only mad at myself, unfortunately. I snap, yell, huff and puff for everyone to hear. I make rash assumptions, I vent nothing but profanity, negativity, and self hate. I hardly ever point my finger or blame on someone else but they still get pushed away. I’ve been described as a cactus, a few times. I cut people off mid-sentence, if I feel what they are saying is pointless. People try but I haven’t broken my walls down, YET.
    I obviously have a very wounded inner child, because I come across as an out of control, irate toddler throwing an epic temper tantrum. Something I’m working on.

  8. When I’m at my worst, I become more quiet, isolate and withdraw myself from others. My emotions are unstable. My brain can’t think straight and clearly. I need time to heal myself, that’s why I do withdrawal and isolation. If it affects others or not, usually they will worry my conditions but kinda afraid to ask.

  9. I withdraw myself from others…and I even do not pick up the phone if it is really bad.
    My environment is used to my behavior and respect it. But I suppose they feel rejected although it is nothing personal at all. In fact, I am not available for them (or only in serious cases of emergency) and refuse socializing.
