Anger


http://members.tripod.com/kanchanD/ANGER.HTM

I decided to look this topic up today. I've been feeling really angry without obvious reasons. The kids' behaviors added up to that. They've been yelling at each other and teasing each other and ended up crying. It hasn't been easy dealing with that, especially when I was trying to work on something urgent.

Trying to stop them in a normal way didn't work so I ended up yelling at them...and as usual whenever this happened, it left a bad taste in my mouth. I don't like being angry and I don't understand why I feel angry and that's really terrible.

The first piece of info I found about anger is that it is the result of unfulfilled desires and expectations. How true...you'd expect the kids to be quiet and give you some breathing space and you get just the opposite. But what's more disturbing, perhaps deep down I am angry with myself for being unable to fulfil the expectations I've set. Whatever it is, I have a serious self-analysis to perform...

yes, we moms get angry at the people who means the MOST to us. Feel rotten after all the yelling and screaming(and occasional spanking too). But my kids know I love them to bits. Even with all the yelling etc that seems perpetual and incessant, I still smother them in kisses and cuddles, chocolate cakes and ice-creams, fried chickens and creamy spinach pie, bedtime stories and goodnight prayers, a walk and play on the beach :-)

Yes, children are so forgiving :-) It amazes me sometimes how when mom still feels rotten they can already smile and hug like normal...it seems like a learning process for both parties..., mostly for mom.
