When one’s buttons are pushed to the limits, you tend to respond in a way you never chose to do – even if in a technical sense, you could have made a better choice.
That’s how people behave when stressed out, including me.
The sad part for me though, is the fact that I find it quite difficult to forgive myself after responding to a button-pushing situation.
Even if I tell myself, that in 5 years time this wouldn’t even matter.
