Sometimes, just sometimes, my time outs are a chance for me to separate myself from the crowd so I can just vent. I go somewhere alone and let it all loose. I allow myself to have a great, knock down, full on temper tantrum – yelling, cussing, feet stomping, the works. I let it all out in a safe place that doesn’t impact others. Then I take a few deep breaths, ground it all out and clear the air of negative energy.
There’s nothing wrong with momentary releases of pent up frustration as long as we don’t take others down with us. Safely release and then let it all go.
