I can't...I'm naturally uptight and get tense and irritated with people a lot....like say if someone takes ages to tell a story, if someone talks to me while I'm watching TV, if someone randomly asks to see me and I'm not ready, if I can't get my hair to look good, if I have had one hour less sleep. It's really draining and I really want to make a resolution to be more laid back and positive. Any tips?

I'm just like that and tbh, I don't think I'm ever gonna change, I just think it's part of my personality. Of course there's a difference between uptight and plain intolerant. You can be uptight yet tolerant of other people - that's something to think about perhaps.

I get like this too, I think it helps to take a step back and just zone everything out.

That's true....I don't think people have picked up on it, but it stresses me out inside and makes me feel weird. When I'm around someone excessively laid back and non analytical it's such a refreshing thing! Unless they're overly relaxed, that can annoy me too!

Yeah I know what you mean, my bf's the complete opposite of me (and you!) and he doesn't get 'riled up' about anything - it drives me mad sometimes! lol. But we're all different so you've gotta learn to be tolerant of those differences.

Smoke a joint. Blast some music. Then when your vision gets back to normal, play call of duty modern warefare 2. Very stress relieving.

There's nothing blasting a round of bullets into some dudes chest and if your good an extra 50 points for a headshot.

You can't get anymore chill than that.

I know. I am trying to be chilled out but it's really tough! Today my dad kept talking with his mouth open and I got so irritated! And my mum kept asking me to repeat things back to her and I started getting annoyed with that too. I need to stay caaalm! Ur lucky ur bfs calm, mine's even more uptight than me...I need a calming influence.

I didn't come on TSR to be enticed into taking drugs! But yeah, from time to time some alcohol does me the world of good.

Not posting all of life's problems on an internet forum would be a start No but seriously, instead of letting your first thought be 'ugh how freaking inconsiderate/annoying is this', take a deep breath, and think instead 'okay, how can I make this work'

Try getting a massage. That works for me especially when I'm tired or if I'm annoyed with someone. Also, people who work there are generally good listeners.
