“You change your mind, like a girl changes clothes.
And you PMS like a bitch, I would know.”
If you read my last post you know I’m working on a little experiment where I pretend we have house guests in an effort to create a calm family atmosphere. Well, the past few days I could have been the poster child for Katy Perry’s Hot and Cold. It seems that focusing on controlling my temper makes my anger more intense when I do let it out. Not a big surprise. I’ve learned that the real issue for me is not so much controlling my temper as it is controlling how much I let things tick me off.
So, yeah, it’s hard for me. Act like everyone is watching? Everyone would surely think I’m bipolar.
Today my goal is to speak with only kind words to my family. Even when my children frustrate me, make me late, or argue with me, I want to remind myself that this is not the end of the world. I have healthy, wonderful children who deserve to be spoken to with respect. Quiet, kind words. For one day. Say it with me.
Could you do it?
