I'm emotional these days. I try not to be, but I can't help it.
It just seems like nothing is working right in my life.
When the frustrations are too intense, I have melt downs. I don't mean to disrespect you or dishonor you. I'm not even thinking about that. I'm just hurting and don't know what to do.
What I need most from you is love and support to help me regroup.
Please be gentle. An angry tone of voice only makes me feel more stressed.
A calm response is the quickest way to help me calm down. When I'm calm, I can listen to your advice.
That's what I want more than anything. I want to feel you love and support me, even when I've made bad decisions and my life is crazy. And I want you to know that I love you, even when I have a hard time showing it.
