For the last few weeks, I have been very irritable and p*ssed off that I haven't been receiving certain emails. Well, yesterday, I came to a realization: Not everyone checks their email 500,000 times a day like I do (it's a disease; I'm working on a way to cure it!), so I can't expect an answer 2 seconds after I send mine. Plus, if they aren't going to write me back, that's their problem, not mine. I can't force anyone to respond. If things get too out of hand and I don't get replies within a reasonable amount of time, I'll move on. I have options.
It was freeing coming to this conclusion. It is very exhausting being high-strung all the time, so I'm taking steps to calm down (no drugs, just au natural!). It's going well, but I still have a long road ahead of me. I really need to realize that some things are out of my control, and getting angry isn't going to change that. Besides, I have more important things to do. If I focus my energy on those, I'll be able to get a TON of stuff done!
