Some call it laziness, some call it procrastination I call it restlessness.
Call it what you will but I do have a tendency to start things and not finish (see what I did with the title? and you thought I had lost the plot!)
Restlessness is actually a symptom of depression!
restlessness – a lack of patience; irritation with anything that causes delay
This is a big issue for me especially the lack of patience. While I am happy at home when I leave the flat to go shopping or an appointment with Dr nothing drives me madder than long queues at the check out or appointments being late.
There is a sign at my Drs saying “If you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment the Dr may not see you” and yet it is perfectly fine for my 4pm appointment to turn into 4.45 or 5.00 before you see me! And without either an apology or the receptionist informing me of the delay when I arrive!
And the next person at the supermarket who takes forever to get his/her money or card out of their purse/wallet/pocket is going to find out what a moose stampede feels like!
Makes perfect sense doesn’t it! I am lucky as I do have a short temper but not violent tendencies for me a good shout is about as violent as I get but that doesn’t make it any less scary for those on the end of my tirades. As I have said before my bark is a lot worse than my bite, but its a very bad bark.
Sometimes even a good cry can help! YES IT IS OK FOR A MAN TO CRY!!! Anything that causes you to release the frustration is good but never violence!!
Anyways to make you all laugh here is an example of what happens when you start something but don’t finish
looks good doesn’t it! for the record yes I finished shaving – there were too many strange looks at the shops to carry the look off!
