Truth is also that even though the symptoms isn’t sprung from default thinking, the default thinking often becomes a companion we prefered not to have.
After a rage, after scolding our kids, after breaking something, after had a major meltdown without being able to do what we’re supposed to, after have another fight with our spouse the degrading thoughts of not being a good enough mom, a lousy partner, a lesser person accompany us. It inhibits us and makes us feel less worthy. Less than we actually are. Perhaps with the feeling that our families would be better off without us. That our spouse this time had enough. That we will end up alone.
Not only does the symptoms of PMS affect us the after effects of our outbursts and conflicts have profound effects also and easily undermines our selfworth.
In other words, we do have symptoms of PMS but they can be reduced and eased.
