Temper Temper!!


Since I fear certain parties might read this blog, I can't give details about why I'm upset. All I can tell you is I feel really pissed about something right now.

If I were a five year old I'd stomp my feet and scream "IT'S NOT FAIR!!!" I'd probably cry and lash out. But I'm not five. I'm a grown up, and I know that life isn't always fair. So I will grin and bear it. I'll count my blessings, things could be worse. Life is pretty good and I should be thankful for that.

Sometimes when friends don't play nice, you have to find some new friends, or lower you expectations for the ones you have.

(And all those other cliches we tell ourselves when things don't go our way.)

I'll remain calm and move on with my life.

But every once in awhile I'll fantasise about being five, and hitting the person who dissed me in the head with a rock. A REALLY BIG ROCK.

Good LUck on this one- I have struggled over the years with some "friends" too. My husband always calmed me down, don't react or say something you might regret later on. I have had speakers remorse man times....

The comment above is so true. I, too, have had speakers remorse. I think what you're going through happens to all of us and probably too frequently. I know it's hard to do, but just stay calm and focus on other things during your day. I hope this passes soon.

Go ahead and stopm your feet! Work out some aggression and exercise in the process! ;)

I'm sorry you are dealing with disappointment and frustration of people you thought you could count on and trust letting you down. Oh to be that young again where we could react how we wanted without repercussions. It sucks to be old in more ways than one! I hope you feel better just by writing it out and can move forward with peace.

ugh. i know the feeling, i have just decided that anyone who isn't a good friend i just choose to distance myself from. it is easy sometimes. i would say i have weeded out most of the folks who cause me angst.

If I have my days of the week right, I think I know what happened this morning. Hang in there. It isn't fair, I know! It stinks. My surgery is on Monday, hopefully they are going to give me enough room in my shoulder to hit an awesome "Serena" like serve and I can get back on the courts!!!! I need some tennis stories from you!!!!!
Hang in there!

Aw, I'm sorry.

(Sorry I'm too lazy to do a tiny url.)

Okay, since that didn't work as a linky, maybe this will:

Nope, it didn't. Gotta be old school and cut & paste. ;)

Sometimes it's really good to throw a bit of a tantrum (though I don't recommend hitting them on the head with a rock...perhaps kick them in the shin....)

Stomp it out girlie!

linda said...

ps loved that winnie the pooh quote from yesterday- it made me weepy...

Emily said...

i need your email. i swear I am not a stalker, but I would love to talk some with you about "things" I am issues that are sort of the same... I knew it was you by the way. thanks for stopping in...

Eileen said...

Totally get this post! So sorry that happened, it stinks when friends let us down.

I recently had to end a friendship, because it hit me, how toxic it was. I was just getting more and more angry and stressed when I was around her. Sometimes I wait too long to listen to that little voice inside me, that is usually right!!

Take Care.

I have been in the same situation and I know how you feel...I thought my blog would be a good outlet, until I found out this "friend" reads it...boo hoo for me...

Belle in Bloom said...

Oh no. I hate being mad like that. I hope you're feeling better today. Have a cocktail and a nice day at the beach. Maybe that will help take the edge off. :)

ShannanB said...

Why do people have to be such poop heads sometimes - crap, there's my inner 5-year old....

Hope things get better soon!

Jerseygirl89 said...

How about I hit her for you?

Smart A$$ Mom said...

hate editing my journal for readers that need censoring!

Karen MEG said...

Stomp away, and throw your hands in the air, like you really don't care... you'll at least get a good workout from it!

Hope things get better soon!
