Pet peeves and Silent Violence

9th October, 2019

Now I’m not promising to write everyday but the journals to come with have a tablespoon of my day’s experience.

This morning I woke up officially by 5:30am, I’m not a morning person but I am currently serving my country as a Corp member in a school quite far from where I live. We had our corporate devotion where I live and I went to ready myself for the day. Dressed up, breakfast eaten, lunch in a lunch cooler, I moved out to meet a friend I commute together with to work.

..Now that’s where what always happens, happened….

Something I am sure most of us especially the ladies are fond of and care less about.

She was not out.

I called her line and it kept going to voicemail.

I tried the number of the man who was to be our ride to work and Viola! He’s not picking either!!!😀

I’m steaming at this point and I wanted to destroy the worldπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

My brain decides to fuel my emotion by bringing back to memories times I have been delayed by my friend and our ride.

I see red😑 and my day is going down the hill already.

All of a sudden, in my state I remember the horror Korean drama I was watching yesterday. Of people with anger issues, I remember Im Siwan oppa’s face and Lee Dong Wook oppa’s face.

I’m swooning and giggling.

My ride comes with my friend to pick me up and I have forgotten why I was angry in the beginning.

I get to work and find out…….

Dramatic drum Rolls…

We are the first to arrive.

My anger would have been stupid if it surfaced.

Now, question of the day:

How many times we experience our pet peeves and we end up ‘over reacting‘? Or imagining the 10,000 ways we could take a life and go scout free.

Obviously, to the people we react to.. And perhaps when we calm down and think back and wonder why we took it too far.

I once broke my water bottle when I was in senior secondary school.

That was when I started to learn to suck it all up…Which by the way, if you don’t have an outlet for it, you should never try…

My escape is a loud blasting earpiece/headphone of popsongs especially kpop (Don’t you dare roll your eyes, if you’re not a fan. You have no idea how many lives kpop has saved, maybe even yours!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) or a delicious rom-com to make me forget.

Now, I want to ask.

How do you stop your violent streak when your pet peeves occurs?

    1. One thing I came to understand is that, we’ll definitely have murderous and violent tendencies but what makes us human is our ability to control ourself. And hopefully see the good things in life that make us want to continually be good people 😊 well, definitely not the Thanos type of good πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
