I’ve been having a hard time at work. I won’t go into detail but it’s super stressful and exhausting.
I was on a roll a few months ago and was doing well with my home life. My wife brought to my attention that I’ve fallen behind and am not doing my part at home. Stress from work is making my time at home difficult and I’m not doing well regulating my emotions which is affecting my relationship with her. I’m slacking on cleaning, staying organized and realize I’m irritated whenever she talks to me about what I need to do around the place. I know she doesn’t deserve the attitude but it comes out of me and I get defensive. Im not sure why I do this but it’s my reaction to her trying to talk to me about it. Things like cleaning up after myself, taking care of joint things and projects are extremely difficult. I don’t know how to get back on track and need advice on how to stay organized at home again. I also need some insight on how you guys deal with emotions develop from work and interfere with your home life.
I love doing hobbies but it doesn’t help get rid of the stress and irritation I bring home with me and I’m totally not one to meditate.
I’m definitely disappointed with myself for taking a few steps back but know that I’ve overcame this before and can do it again!
Hope everyone is well and I would love some support and advice on these topics.
