I can't believe I didn't *KNOW* this before now.
I knew it... I just didn't really take in what it meant.
I'm talking to my boyfriend at the moment on msn - it's my lunch time and he's not in work today, and 2 hours of phone call would be expensive!
And I forgot to take my medicine last night, so I explained to him that I was feeling ok, I'd been a bit annoyed at some people doing annoying stuff so far today, but that's ok.
And that's my realisation.
It's perfectly normal to get annoyed at people if they're being annoying. And it's perfectly normal to be sad about upsetting things.
I really have to accept that!
I don't have to think "Oh no, I'm annoyed... I must be angry manic, I'm going to get dangerous soon, or oh no, I'm sad, I must be depressed, I'm going to get suicidal soon!"
It is perfectly allowed to have a wide range of emotions!
It is, in fact, NORMAL!
I can't believe I had to work that out!
And yet, I feel so much better having really worked it out.
So, everyone; if you're feeling sad, or annoyed at people, have a look at why. You might just see that it's perfectly normal. And that should be enough to put a little smile on your face.
