I have been through a lot in life too, which helps me to be able to empathize with situations, thoughts and feelings that we have. Sometimes, it's not easy just being human.

It takes energy to get along and interact with others, no matter how close they are to you. If you are dealing with other stresses from work or school, or feeling under the weather, your emotional energy reserves may be a little low. Be kind to yourself and take some time to recharge!

We are 9 in my family so sometimes it's really exhausting to be with them at all time. I can get really irritated when my mom or dad makes a judgement about the way i live my life. I'm 23 and still live with my parents, i love them so much but sometimes it's too much so i just leave. I'll go on a big walk, i'll go to the cinema or do some shoppings. When you can't do that, just go in your room, put some headset on and immerge yourself in another world. You'll find out that you just needed some time for yourself. Leaving the house for just an hour or two has been really helpfull lately, just try it !

Sometimes you just need time for yourself, alone. When you remove yourself from familiar surroundings, like going for a walk in the park, meditate, etc., then it may become clearer to you why you feel the way you do.
