When one doesn't manage the emotions, one is blind to the triggers and environment causing it.

Funny thing is for some guys, if you tell them drive without a tachometer or speedometer or fuel gauge they will look like you are insane, but this is what they are doing to themselves IRL.

As a point example, I had multiple financial hits on our farm, had a reoccuring tooth issue flare up hard that turned into a root canal (one that took 90-100 minutes of digging to deal with). Work hell and then I lost a friend along the way that meant a lot to me.

I have used therapy before for many times, but I also found therapy was causing stress and was not being productive, so I asked my therapist for a pause.

Some might say you are avoiding and running, but I realized that at some point one has to realize that they are tapped out and take the rest and time to be conservative and peaceful and let one's body recover and process the real time hell.

Look, Listen, Love, and Live
