Time to cross some roads. (Yes, I know it’s a rooster.)

Knowing yourself well is both a blessing and a curse.

A blessing because when you are feeling down about something or confused or pissed off, you can usually pinpoint the cause of that feeling. Pretty easily.

And if you know where that uncomfortable emotion is coming from, that knowledge by itself can sometimes make you feel better.

But it’s also a curse.

Because if you know where your emotion is coming from, and what’s causing it, you have no choice but to own up to it and then make your way to fixing things so you feel okay again.

The onus is on you.

Unless of course, you’re perimenopausal.

Then all bets are off.
