Thumbs down How to stop taking my stress out on my boyfriend - November 23rd 2012, 05:57 AM

I'm in college, paying bills, having minor family troubles, and just started my first job working at a daycare. I have a lot on my plate and the biggest reason for my stress is the daycare. When I get home to my boyfriend, I notices I nag and put him down more often. He is very childlike and reminds me of the toddlers I work with (in cute ways and obnoxious ways). I can't yell at the kids so when I get home I take out my frustrations on him. I'm not okay with this and need to change but I don't know how. Any advice on how to deal with stress in a better way?

whether the weather is cold
or whether the weather is hot
we'll whether the weather
whatever the weather
whether we like it or not.

Re: How to stop taking my stress out on my boyfriend - November 23rd 2012, 07:41 PM

I do the same exact thing. When I'm frustrated or upset, I usually take it all out on my boyfriend and the main reason for that is because I know that no matter what, he loves me and he's going to be there for me. He understands that I'm upset and need to vent and he's completely okay with being the person that I go to when I just need to scream. However, I hate that I do this. I can't stand it. One thing I found really beneficial was venting or getting my frustration out in other ways such as exercising. There have beens days where I'm so mad and stressed out about my day that I just went to the gym and I worked out really hard while crying and crying. Hey, I have no shame. It's okay to cry. Also, instead of yelling at him about everything going on, I started keeping a journal to record everything that's upsetting me and how I can work at improving them. For now until you find something that works for you, talk to your boyfriend and let him know not to take any of this personally. Let him know that you don't mean to do this and that you're working on a way of finding another outlet of this stress and frustration.

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.
