A Bad Day And How I Handled It

In this essay I will be describing a bad day that I had about five months ago.

The Bad Day

The day started just badly, I woke up and accidently bumped into my sister, Nancy, when I was walking down the hall. Both of us were not in the best of moods, and she snapped at me(verbally), I of course defended myself, and then it took off. After our argument we didn’t speak to each other all morning, which made everything awkward and tense. To make matters worse when I was clearing the dishwasher I dropped a plate, and it broke, this angered my sister even more, and she snapped at me again about something to do with me being careless, which left me angry and hurt.

Later in the day my sister and I made up, and got along just fine, but another disaster struck. I  lost an earring. It was a stressful thirty minutes of searching all over my house(losing something is not a great feeling at all). Thankfully I found my earring, but the damage was still done to my mood, which affected my day. For the rest of the day I just felt super down and moody.

How I Handled It

Even though I felt awful about the whole situation, I still tried to handle it. I took plenty of deep breaths, especially when I was about to blow my fuse, I even made myself a mug of calming Lemon balm tea to ease my stress when things got stressful when I lost my earring. Even though I seemed to be not calm I tried my best to be, it was really difficult though; and at the end of the day I spoke to my Mom about it, talking to somebody about it really helped, and made me feel a lot better.


I learned a very important lesson from that day; I learned that even a bad situation is not the end of the world, and that there is most likely a solution to fix the situation or at least make it better, don’t give up.

    Great post! Glad you learned something from the day! Patience and staying calm is definitely not my strong suit! Something I should work on!
