be Grouchy!!! but…
Do you get grouchy? Do you snap at people?
Hey listen, it’s OK to answer yes
It is completely fine. Everyone gets grouchy. It’s natural. It is probably a biological & psychological necessity
So, go ahead. Be grouchy if you need to be.
don’t be naive. Know that your grouchiness has implications
When you’re grouchy, you emanate negative energy - with words, body language, pheromones, facial expressions
If you’re lucky, this negative energy dissipates because those exposed have mechanisms to disperse it
Other times, the grouchiness is shared less destructively – like a bitch fest about a common co-worker
however, most of the time, your negative energy has victims - employees, coworkers, family members, friends, strangers, or even small animals.
Sometimes your grouchiness actually hurts the people around you
Other times it infects them with their own grouchiness
It has happened to you. So you know what I’m talking about
So here’s my advice
When you are grouchy, be grouchy. I’m not telling you to, “stop being grouchy.” That’s not possible.
Accept that you have responsibilities
First, you have the responsibility to recognize that you are grouchy
once you recognize that you’re in a foul mood, you have the responsibility to try to stay away from others, or at least dissipate the grouchy energy on something inanimate
Finally, when you can’t protect others, you have the responsibility to apologise once you regain composure
Apologise whether or not they were hurt, because people may not tell you & because being grouchy is bad manners
Better yet, if you are grouchy and you know it, acknowledge it. “I’m just so grouchy today! Sorry in advance”. That, in itself, may help.
Be Grouchy, But…
