One of my environmental triggers for moods

Stopped into visit my parents this evening.
Ended up being more of a 2 hour heated debate on anything I would bring up.
My dad sometimes likes to challenge me on almost anything I say and turns it into some heated debate.
I absolutely hate debating stuff. I took the bate and kept answering back but by the end there was so much tension in the room I had to leave.

Put me in a pretty pissed off/rage like mood. I’m sure caffeine attributed to heightening the mood.

I’m so glad I don’t live at home anymore for that reason . Both my parents tend to do that at home.

So it’s good I live on my own now. I still like my parents I just can’t stand debates.

Played piano for a bit , didn’t really help.
I’m gonna go hit the gym.
Having this forum to vent is life saver

Cheers

put ground rules down before you go round…
if a ’ debate ’ starts …say you are not going to join in …or walk out the room…
you then are taking control of the situation…
empowering yourself…without any confrontation.
take care :alien:
