How are you doing wonderful people of Thelma Thinks blog?
I'm great, I feel so airey. LOL
So you know, the "relationship partner" and I were talking some days ago and we realized that we'd barely had a quarel (that was my fault) in several months, in fact we realized that the only time we had quarrels was when I had a mood swing and I haven't had a single mood swing in months!
Not even one.
This was something I used to have everyday, sometimes two or three times a day...
And guess what, it was all thanks to you guys!
When I wrote about dealing with my challenging mood swings a lot of you were like "yeah right biko snap out of it jare!"
Basically you said it was something I could easily control, I just had to decide to do so.
I knew I wasn't depressed nor had any mental health issue so I decided to stop being a spoiled brat and actually try.
And guess what,
ZERO mood swing! And it's been nearly a year (wow, time doth fly).
Of course there are times I get upset, naturally. But it's only when something upsetting happens, like it does to every other person. My mood no longer just changes on its own and on the rare occasion that it does, I (can) switch it right back, so there's no question at all of me having an attitude or snapping at anyone or being a party pooper.
In fact, his friends started noticing it months ago. LOL. It's so funny. One asked me last month "How come you don't frown again? This is not the you I know o!"
But actually, the title of this post is just click bait! Not having mood swings anymore goes far beyond my current relationship. It goes way deeper than that and has really changed my life, I think. It's changed the way I relate with my family, and the way they and other people relate with me. It opened my eyes to why some friendships didn't work out, and how to be a better friend. It has made me much better company and a more likable person. It's a good feeling knowing that I'm not ruining anyone's day, and better yet, that I wouldn't drive my husband to a beer parlor every night just because he doesn't know what mood madam will be in when he gets home, as I used to fear. 😂
So thank you guys, is what I'm trying to say. I thank those blog readers that actually took the time to leave helpful comments on that post, even the tough-love comments. They really helped.
I guess the next "intervention" I need is how to be less of an introvert and like to be around people more. 😂😂😂
Any one else need an "intervention", a character flaw they'd like to talk about and possibly change? Share with us, let's talk about it.
