I have to admit that I am still a bit childish at times. I guess it’s my defense mechanism or probably my outlet whenever I am stressed. Regressing back to childhood mannerisms just feel good at times. Catharsis is encouraged sometimes too because it allows you to empty your feelings and start fresh. One of my victims whenever I am in this type of mood is best friend. Well, she already knows who I am. She can probably blackmail me already because of all the things she knows about me. She is kind of used to my behavior when I am acting like this.
Just last week, I probably had the most stressful days. There’s always that week where everything seems to fall apart. A client didn’t want my research so I had to redo it. I lost a few of my files in the computer. My car broke down just when I was about to go to the grocery—it all piled up! So I called my best friend and cried on the phone. She listened to me whine for about half an hour before she finally said the words that would make me feel better. “I’ll go over and cook anything you want to eat.” That day, I was in the mood for ravioli. So she made me this creamy pesto ravioli that I loved. I love her with all my heart too!
