I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! I post my characters on Thursdays but feel free to post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on the prompt post. ♡
This weeks theme is:
May 16th 2019 – Yeah, Their Temper is Ridiculous!
(It could be a mental illness, stress because they’re a mom or they have to deal with idiots! Whatever it is their temper is legendary…)
Do I class as a character whose temper is ridiculous because I’m sure if my husband was given this prompt that is exactly what he would say and to be frank I don’t blame him, I can be a handful.
Therefore I decided it was time to go with my nickname that I received from work and go with:
Hulk is well-known for his temper to a point where Banner says:
Now, I know he probably doesn’t really fit the whole theme of Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and Mental Health Awareness Month as outlined by Dani, but I’m not one for sticking to the exact themes per se.
The reason why I’ve gone with Hulk because I was recently diagnosed with Anxiety and am coming to terms with that. It’s been a case of I’ve had it for years but now with everything that has been going on my emotional well overflowed and I couldn’t deal with it anymore and had to seek help.
Like I mentioned earlier, I was called Hulk by my colleagues in my last job (I left through no fault of my own as they got rid of all 90 members of staff). The reason why I got called the Hulk is because people who called up wanting advice wouldn’t listen and I couldn’t take myself down to their level and couldn’t raise them p to mine who I was frustrated with myself. Due to this happening 8 hours a day 4 days a week I started not to be able to control my temper and I ended up shouting at the people who were calling for advice. Although, it did make me better at my job because people were finally paying attention but, new people started avoiding my area of the office because of this “Hulk” who was supposed to be a huge angry person whose reputation preceded them. Instead they got a 5’3″ pregnant lady who didn’t need to be pregnant to be angry.
It’s been about two months since I finally began to understand things and I’ve made some changed but I wished I’d have known the signs sooner and been able to get the help I needed before now. It’s not easy to be overflowing with that much raw and angry emotion which is why I relate to the Hulk.
Anyone else that is struggling out there I would urge you to seek help or seen advice and don’t think it will just go away on its own. It won’t, I know that for a FACT.
Please, please, please don’t feel like you need to do this all on your own, I’ve got your back. Please don’t make
I love you all 😘
