Blow Ups

Updated on July 13, 2020

Temper Tantrums

Are they necessary?

Are they healthy?

Why? Why? Why?

When things don't go as planned

It's o.k. to be mildly upset

No need for an explosion

That is uncalled for

An overreaction to the situation

If you get mad at that problem

What happens when something really bad happens?

I will never understand

If you have extra energy

Put it to good use

Hit a punching bag

Do some push-ups

Go lift some weights

Take a walk or better yet go for a jog

Let's look at the problem at hand

You have trouble with glass containers

They have the snap on covers

That over time stop snapping

When you started putting leftovers away

You get so mad they don't work like they should

We bought the containers only two months ago

I don't know why they aren't working

We will have to write to the company

Maybe it's a problem when they made them

We have to wait and see

You don't want to wait

So you get really mad and only make me sad

I think it is immature and a waste of my time

What if I acted the same way when things didn't go my way

How does that help?

It doesn't

So it is a bad habit you have to stop

Learn to grow up

Act your age

Take the time to write about your situation

No, you only want to complain

I come closer to the solution

You keep repeating the problem

Another day that turns from sweet to sour

In less than an hour

      Gypsy Rose Lee I agree with you that it is better to find a way to deal with a problem that comes your way than be mad at yourself and cause more problems. To me getting angry just complicates the problem and then we can't focus or think clearly. Even if the problem goes away it will resurface another day. Unless we break the problem down and dismantle it then we can move on and learn from our mistakes and difficult situations. We become better people and learn to grow and experience new adventures. Thank you so much for sharing. I am also glad your trust in the Lord helps you with every step of the way. There are so many things in life we don't understand. I believe there are answers out there. We just have to look long and hard. Prayer is a great way to find the results we are looking for. Wishing you a wonderful day. Happy writing.

      I gave up being angry a long time ago, It was not worth it, and besides now who would I be angry at, myself? I did say some angry word to myself when I had an anxiety problem because I was hoping those days were well past me and it shook me up so I yelled at myself in the mirror to shape up. Luckily with the Lord.s help I have.
