I realized that I made a mistake when I was trying to discuss something with my boyfriend. I was upset and needed someone to talk about things. I became aware that I should have discussed it with him during dinner. I say that we should have talked about this earlier, since it isn’t a good idea to talk about stressful things in an hour before bed.
Discussing these things with my boyfriend before bed, didn’t really help me, because he became upset and stressed out, too. We didn’t really come up with any ideas to resolve this situation. So it had to wait until later to figure out a solution.
Today, if I can, I will not talk about stressful situations before going to bed, as it might interfere with actually falling asleep. Instead, I will try to write about my feelings in a journal, and I will discuss with someone who is involved in the situation, or someone who might be able to solve the situation until it is an appropriate time to discuss something stressful.
