I dunno, [...].  May have to take points off that one for being pretty darn mature.  After all, it was coming up for replacement and practically you just made dusting rags out of it.  I admire your self-restraint laying off the new kitchen towel. 

Thanks for sharing!

You're right, there was no rhyme reason to tear it, I was just upset.  And it could have served a lot longer, the new things aren't necessarily all that.

I was praising your maturity actually.  "Points off" for not being immature enough for this thread (my attempt at humor).  There's much worse things one can do when upset.

I agree. I never destroy things when I’m upset. I have too much respect for things that serve me.
I usually try some cognitive reframing, while giving full attention to my Kitty. She calms me down. But that’s mature, I guess.

If someone really gets on my nerves, I may listen to hard rock or heavy metal songs on my headphones. Which I dedicate to that "special person." The emotional flooding just fades away.
I concentrate on the music. It’s very cathartic. Like you can dedicate Iron Maiden’s "The Number of the Beast", Bloodhound Gang’s "Fire Water Burn", Motörhead”s "Killed by Death", Jimi Hendrix’ "Hey Joe" to your current "enemy."

I hose the pigeons away 🐦 and tell them to rack off.  I would never hurt them.

Aww, they probably like the water anyhow, [...].  Birdbath.  :)

Today I rescued a young earth worm from a spider web in our kitchen, where the floor connects to the bottom of kitchen cabinets.  The poor thing was alive, but badly tangled, these webs are so sticky!  I cleaned the web off of her and released her outside, she bounced back right away and went off happy.  Then I went full throttle after the spider webs, not exactly a mature thing to do.  We clean the floor under kitchen cabinets regularly, but obviously once a week is not enough.

Been awhile since I revisited here.  Anyhow, here you go, another one.  I've found quite helpful into my adult years as well.  One can silently think, "Lalalalalala...I can't hear you."  That way nobody's feelings get hurt.  ;)

When I was really bad from my accidental rapid WD, I started sucking my thumb...
At 34...
It helped

I can believe that, [...].  A number of times post cold turkey I felt I needed to be clutching a teddy bear myself.  Maybe I should have tried the thumb.
