Why Can’t you Just Keep Calm and Carry on?

Rule #1 of life. Do what makes you happy - unknown

Life can be such a mess. We are living in a world where it seems that everything has to be done at breakneck speed. There are so many deadlines, events and daily struggles filling up our diaries that it can be difficult to know whether we are coming or going. Do we have to just keep calm and carry on? Or just accept that there are some very good reasons why we can’t always keep calm.

You can be too excited and/or upset to discuss things rationally.

Sometimes grand occasions call for grand reactions. While trying to be a peaceful and tactful human being, sometimes you just have to rant. So, if you start screaming about something, it can be because you just want everyone to understand your thoughts and opinions. But just because your shouting doesn’t mean you’re upset. You can be equally excessively vocal and  expressive about good things and great ideas. When something major is happening, you may not have the time or patience to sit around quietly.

Sometimes you just can’t take the fact we live in a mad world.

There’s nothing wrong with recognizing the sense of being overwhelmed and frustrated, and simply letting that moment happen preferably in a dignified manner, but perhaps with a good scream and cry. Work is tough, the world is insane right now, and there are both glorious and terrible things happening that we should address. Of course it’s not good to keep losing your cool. But it’s not good to bottle up your frustration.It’s a dangerous form of self-denial.

Ranting is cathartic.

Many people have barks that are are way, way worse than their bites, ranting allows you to blow off  steam, and that process is, if nothing else, cathartic.


Realising that we are losing it more and more does potentially raise the quest ion  are we becoming an angry person and do we need to bring it under control?
