So hormones are one of those things that increase when your pregnant…duh. But they also fluctuate when your not, say on your cycle, after something very emotional. Guys even get hormone shifts sometimes.
Its important to acknowledge these hormones and not let them take over your relationship. This week I had a reasonable ‘problem’ with Mac. Nothing major just one of those annoyances we all have, but it happened a few days in a row….I let my hormones get the better of me and turned it in to an all night issues between the two of us, that even though we talked it out caused a HORRIBLE nights sleep (serves me right.)
Unnecessary, looking back I had all the signs of being a hormonal wreck that night how did I not catch that? Here are a few ways I can tell something is more hormonal than reality. These are just me and don’t mean what I’m feeling is invalid it just means I might be blowing it out of proportion.
- Does my reaction level make sense to me? No?!? Big hint.
- Has this happened before? Did I react at this same level that time? (This was a big hint for me when we were talking about $$ a few weeks ago and I caught the hormone craze before it took over.)
- Am I holding on to it after it should be resolved? Hormones
These are my biggies, I hope to keep them in the back of my mind so that I don’t become a hormone crazed monster. Not in the next few months or the next few years. Hormones aren’t only for pregnant women you know 😉
