Do you ever get angry with your children? I do.
I hate it. I hate it when I lose my temper. Or yell. Or speak with a mean tone in my voice.
I don’t want to do that. It’s part of this whole FunMom thing for me. As I become FunMom, I lose AngryMom. As I become FunMom, I read and I study and I learn how. How, exactly, does one become fun?
I don’t mean fun as in “play-a-wild-raucous-game-of-Duck-Duck-Goose” fun. I mean fun as in peaceful. Laughter. Enjoying my children and my life and my role. Happiness with myself.
As in, not angry.
Although come to think of it, what if every time we felt angry we played a wild raucous game of Duck Duck Goose? I bet that would do the trick right there.
I think it’s a good time to try my first series. A series on anger. I can write a lot about it because it’s one of my biggest downfalls.
I know I know. I’ve read it too, “they” tell us not to focus on what we’re bad at, but on our strengths. Well, sadly, anger is a strength for me. But we’re not going to talk about how to get angry. We’re going to talk about how to avoid anger. Actually, how to fight anger. We’re going to be on the offense. Proactive.
No More Anger. That’s my motto.
The First Post Will Come To Press on Thursday.
We’ll go from there, with “anger” posts on Tuesday and Thursday. Until we’re all out of thoughts on anger. Then we’ll go to something else.
As we go, I’d absolutely love your input:
- What situations in your home can get you boiling?
- How do you avoid spewing your anger at those closest to you?
- What have you learned about dealing with anger?
I’m all ears.
