What do you do when you're irritated with someone or something? An event or circumstance... something uttered by someone you don't already like... a behavior... a revelation... sometimes, the mere tone of the voice or presence...
I've found myself wanting to hurl a coffee mug or water glass at the closest human being. However, I always exercise restraint.
So... how do I deal when I find myself irritated at someone/something?
I take a deep breath... find something else to amuse or distract me... read... talk about it out loud with myself to objectify things... write...
Whatever... so long as the end result is a diminished level of irritation.
Distractions usually work... and I'm able to go about like normal again.
Until my goat is got.
