Do you ever get to the point where your frustration makes you want to become a different person for a minute and tell a person how you really feel? Well, that happens to me. When I was younger, I did not have a filter, if I thought it I said it. Now as a wiser more mature person (she laughs) I tend to think more before I speak, you know thinking about the other person’s feelings or how it may make me look if I say what I really want to. So I keep it PC.
However every once and a while I just have to go off the rails because I feel it’s the only way to get someone to listen. As my mother used to say, speaking nicely doesn’t sometimes work, so you have to change the behavior.
Corporate settings are a cesspool for not saying what you really think. As an HR professional well, I have to keep somethings to myself until I leave my workplace. When I get to this place of frustration, the gym, other things I can’t mention, and a chilled glass of wine keeps me sane.
What do you do to relieve stress and frustration?
These are my 5 frustration remedies
1 A good old fashioned girlfriend talk
2 People watching
3 A kick-ass session at the gym
4 The unmentionable (you know what I mean)
5 A glass of wine or champagne
