STOP IT! You’re driving me nuts

Why do you do this to me? Why are you saying that? Why did you do that? Leave me alone. Stop it. You’re driving me nuts. Go away. Stop talking. I’m not listening. Stop making that noise. I can hear you chewing. Stop doing that. I can’t take it anymore.

Do you find yourself bubbling with emotion as you try to hold it back?

Is it easy for a loved one to provoke you to anger or frustration?

Do you often say or scream “stop it”? If you answered YES to any of the above, continue reading…

Love Always,



  1. It’s so hard to keep calm sometimes when you’re trying to, and the person keeps doing the same thing… But with these questions in mind… I think one would have a rethink before an outburst

  2. I have definitely been in the situation where I want to scream STOP IT! I do try and take some deep breaths within myself though and look at the situation from another point of view.

  3. I needed this reminder, especially after the particularly challenging morning with my oldest. The 5 years question is my go-to. I try to get him to reason that through and also stop to think it myself. Great post!
