I had dinner with a friend last night and I made a statement about everyone being a pill away from being legally crazy. We laughed at this, but I truly believe it. If you have a brain, your wires get crossed at times and crazy thoughts pop into your mind that only you know about. You may feel you are about to snap when placed in situations that rock your boat. EVERYONE has a breaking point or an issue that irritates them to the core. Even the most spiritual person has buttons that can be pushed.
We do something to prevent us from going over the edge. Whether it be count to ten, exercise, pray, hold your breath, curse, sing, meditate, scream, drink, or take a pill. We all have different degrees of coping skills and at some point in our life (this may be daily for some), we feel like we're going to lose it, so what do you do to maintain your sanity? You have to find out what works best for you. Daily exercise works for me. If you don't know the mental benefits of exercise, you're missing out on the world's best kept secret to maintaining your peace of mind. At the end of the day when you've dealt with other people's issues, comments, and complaints, taking a long walk or dancing to a favorite song for just ten minutes will make a big difference in your state of mind. Whatever works for you, just do it. There are alot of crazy people walking around and many of them don't want to accept the fact that they are just a pill away from being Coo - Coo for Cocoa Puffs.
