HomeSelf Relationship QuestionsHow to stop being so dramatic in all scenarios?
Roy Murray asked 2 months ago

I really can't help but overreact to literally everything. If something bad happens, I'm a total basket case. If something good happens, I'm on top of the world. It's exhausting and it's starting to affect my relationships. I need to learn how to just chill out.

I am so sorry you are going through this. But, what may be the cause of your overreacting? Is it because you grew up in a chaotic household? Or, have you been through traumas that have made you this way? If so, then you might want to seek professional help

There are some things you can do on your own to help deal with this, though. One thing you can do is to start practicing mindfulness. This means living in the present moment and being aware of your thoughts, feelings, and surroundings without judgment. This can help you to become more grounded and in control of your reactions.

You can also try some breathing exercises to calm yourself down when you start to feel overwhelmed. Inhale for four counts, hold for four counts, and exhale for four counts. Repeat this until you feel your body relax.

It's also important to make sure that you're taking care of yourself physically. This means eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly. When your body is healthy, it can better handle stress.
