Today, I lost my cool for the first time in a long time.
My boyfriend and I have a roommate who lives with us in a tiny apartment, and I don’t typically get along with any roommates (besides my boyfriend.) Well, today was no exception.
Living in a tiny apartment, things get on your nerves and they get on your nerves a lot. I’m not the confrontational type, so I always try to bury my problems with people deep down inside of me.
I’ll eventually get to a point where I can’t hold it all back anymore and I just explode. That’s what happened today.
I completely flipped out on my roommate about something super small and then proceeded to tell her every single thing she had done that bothered me since she moved in a few months ago.
Petty, I know.
Do I regret it? Yes.
But I’ve learned something out of this situation. Not only have we opened up our communication to another level (she forgave me after I apologized) but I’ve realized that I can’t always take the passive aggressive route, sometimes I need to speak up and let something known before it gets blown way out of proportion.
Like I said, I’m not perfect and I don’t claim to be.
I wanted to take a moment and be really vulnerable with you guys, because even though I’ve made a lot of progress lately, I still have my shortcomings and things I need to work on.
What’s something you’ve messed up on recently? It can be a little mistake or a big one, just tell me in the comments!
We’re all human, remember that.
