|Can I say that curse word now?|
In my brief research it seems that anger is prodominatly caused by triggers. I have been going through a lot of personal reflection to better understand my triggers and what my anger might really be saying beyond "Grrr...I'm mad!" I will spare you the details of that information (TMI?) but I did realize I could take a fun spin on this personal reflect for you guys! How about we talk about nerd rage?

We have all been that. That dark moment. Whether it's during a game or while trying to create the next great American novel, this is the source of so much nerd rage that I'm sure it's collective anger could create a new, fiery sun. This sun would be the darkest most evil thing in all the galaxy. Why? Because losing all of your work after hours and hours of time is so horrible. You will now have to go back, retread the ground you walked on and hope you can make the same footprints again. And you know what? It's impossible to get it just the same. You will now only have a shadow of what you did to follow and things will change. I have lost writing before and it hurts so bad to lose something you spent so much trying trying to get right the first time. Maybe it's easier with a video game to go back, but now you are just annoyed that you have to listen to the stuff you just heard and do the same things all over again. You lose all feeling of progression and tasks just turn tedious. Long story short, losing your progress sucks. Take it from me, hit the save button and hit it often. It might take you out of what you are doing for a few moments but it's better than having to go back and try it all over again.
Honestly, talking about this has helped me feel a little more lighthearted about somethings that would normally make me so mad. It's been a rough week and it's nice to finally let go of stuff that was weighing my mind. I hope this will help you too. Do you have anything that leaves you in a nerd rage? Or is there something that's been bugging you lately that you need to get off your chest? Let me know! And remember, you are not alone!
Thanks & tootles!
