What's going on with these mood swings?

I'm a teenager and I get these really intense mood swings.

My mood will be really high and I'll think of something that I want to do. When I start to make it happen I get irritated by other people if they intervene. Then if the thing I wanted to do doesn't work out, I have these tendencies to blame other people for it not working out.

Can you explain what's going on?

Why do you blame other people who had nothing to do with your actions?

If it is because after the fact you wish you had accepted their help, then the person who is responsible for this is you!

Since you are aware of your tendencies and how the interfere with your life, try to become aware of when you do these habits.

This way you can interrupt your own patterns a little bit at a time.
