Get the Beside mug.
Extreme joy, anger, etc, brought on by a situation that causes one to be "out of one's mind" with that emotion.

"Beside" was formerly (15th through 19th centuries) used in phrases to mean "out of a mental state or condition, as 'beside one's patience, one's gravity, one's wits'" (Oxford Engl. Dict.), and that use survives only in "'beside oneself': out of one's wits, out of one's senses."
I was so beside myself looking at all the women on the beach that I didn't hear my wife yelling for help.

My Grandma was Southern born and raised, so a lot of Southern Dialect , sayings and nuances were little lessons throughout my life. One of those sayings that I favored is " You're getting besides yourself"- My grandma would say this to me anytime she felt I was trying to "show off", "Act up" or get "too cutesy". It was a soft way of saying, "get back in line", or "get yourself together", "humbly thyself". It is usually used by someone elder or maternal/paternal, is helpful and surely is an expression of love!
