Time to turn the bitch off

It is a phrase that is used in my household, when someone is cranky, negative or just not themselves.

That has been me this past week and I swear it is time that I get back to being me. I am not normally, in my opinion, bitchy. Yes, I am opinionated and I am willing to voice that opinion, but this week I have been worse than normal, going to down right bitchiness and that is not how I like to be.

First off, I want to apologize to anyone I was bitchy towards.
Second, I want to say that hormones have a lot to do with it, as does school right now. I know, no excuse, but it is being honest.

I went to the movies with my friend Deborah yesterday. We went and saw Fireproof. The acting was not all that great, but the story line was perfect. The way the two main characters acted is the way my husband and I have been acting for about a year now. We have even thought about separating, but realize we got married for better or worse and that we have to work through this. If you have not heard of this movie, I suggest you go here and see the trailer. I have decided to send off for the book and see how it works with rebuilding our relationship. Hubby has also said that he will go next week and see the movie with me.
This movie got me thinking about how I have been treating people and feeling very cranky with everyone. I want to be a better person than what I have been and I am going to change starting today. I need to bite my tongue and not take everything personally. I also need to stop being a braggart and just be who I am at the moment. I am me, hear me roar... or not as the case may be. I will try to go with the flow and see where life takes me around each curve. It can be an adventure.
So, I need to turn my Bitch off and I am now flipping the switch.Free Clipart Picture of a Wall Mounted Light Switch. Click Here to Get Free Images at Clipart Guide.com

Your post really hit home. I've also realized that I've been really bitchy lately, mostly because of school and health issues. I appreciate the reminder to step back and be nice and appreciative of those around me. Being cranky with them won't make me feel any better. Good luck with your new outlook!

Thank you for being so honest. Hearing you speak so honestly and openly does make me think about how I may come across to others at times.
