Have you ever been so ANGRY...

that you had to leave the house to cool down? I was so angry last night at my dd that I had to tell my husband to deal with it and I went for a nice long walk to cool down. Good thing I did too...because once I cooled down I was ready to listen to her explaination....and not beat her...(No I don't beat my child....hence the walk)

  • Yes, I get that angry, at the kids and dh and that insanely slow driver infront of me!!!!
    Good for you walking away, it's important that we recognise that adults may need breaks too.

  • Yes I have. If I can't go outside, I go to my room and SO will keep the kids away until the storm passes!

  • I don't have the luxury of getting out and walking when I'm pissed (because my hub works afternoons/evenings). So what do I do? I lock myself either in my room or the computer room and tell the kids to LEAVE ME ALONE. I don't like myself when I get that angry, and I need them to go away and let me calm down before dealing with whatever it was.
