I’ve lost many loves to this moment.
People and things and even bits of myself that I’ve cherished have fallen victim to that moment of frustration, more times than I’d like to admit.
There are lots of reasons that fiery flood of hormones gets unleashed.
We might have been beaten at something. Or maybe it isn’t working how it’s supposed to. Or we have made a mistake and realized it too late. Sometimes, we’re just hungry.
But every time, we feel threatened in some way.
Not understanding the situation, our bodies do the only thing they know to do: fight or flight.
When that blood with all its raging hormones rushes to our head, all it takes is that one sullen word or a flick of the wrist, and we can break something we really love.
Learning how to control that moment, or at least not let it control us, is one of the greatest skills we can learn.
And I’ve still got a long way to go.
