My Head Is Spinning

I need to stop.

How my oldest reacts to a situation, or creates hostility, starts my mind spinning toward thoughts of what can happen months, years down the road. 'If she doesn't think that she's wrong about causing her sister pain then she'll become the bully of her school'. 'Her moodiness could become serious depression.' 'She doesn't clean her room, she's going to be a horder!'

That last thought could just be me watching too much "Clean House".

I need to calm down. I need to focus on the current day. I keep saying this to myself but it's not working. I might be the one depressed.

  1. Oh boy do I get that. I read the internet and then think everyone has tapeworms and lead poisoning. I had to go from taking things a day at a time to moments at a time.

  3. I totally get where you are coming from here....sometimes it is important to just be in the moment and let the stress go (but kids sure can make that hard!!)

  4. I think it is best to teach kids about morals at home while they're brains are still changeable. The older they grown the more hard headed they become.

  5. I've caught myself doing that from time to time. Just take it one day and one incident at a time.

  6. I can help with that. I think you are actually talking about my oldest. We considered body armor at one point.

    She will try to run her sister's life but not become a threat to society, yours or the world's...though you will feel that at any minute you are headed to the loony bin yourself. And then she will go to college and make everyone's life easier until break when she comes home and it starts all over again. Then I hear when they both grow up, they become best friends and laugh about you all the time.

    I know it's tough. There is light at the end, I promise!!
