Arguments Abound with Family and Friends
Fights between couples, among family members and involving friends are bound to happen from time to time, and most decent people are willing to cut a loved one some slack if he or she is having a particularly bad day. But if you start to sense that you're the main common denominator when it comes to all the arguments going on around you, then that's a big sign right there that you're doing too much. Being overly busy can cause a serious spike in short tempers, and if your schedule is so hectic that every day seems to end up a bad day, you can quickly start wearing on the patience of those around you. If tempers flare, consider taking five or even 20 minutes to calm down so you can spare the people you love your irritated (and probably undeservingly aimed) wrath.
