Do you have someone in your family that you love more than anything that also can push your buttons more than anyone else?
Is it one of your children, your mother, your sister, or your husband?
Have you had one of those afternoons where it seems like one simple thing after another is pissing you off?
And then that "button pusher" of yours just sends you over the edge?
That is what happened to me today.
I love my hubby more than anything. He truly is a wonderful husband, partner, father, and friend, and I couldn't ask for anything more.
He is not good at giving me space when I am upset or have hit my limit of stress. Instead he pushes and pushes and follows me around until I break.
I do not like the uncontrollable anger and frustration I feel when I reach my breaking point. Usually after a few minutes alone and a good cry. I am good, just feel like crap for losing my cool. At least it has only happened a couple times ever and the last time was about 2 years ago but I still hate it!
I suppose a good, controlled cry more often would be better for me than holding it all in until I explode.
Now please tell me I am not alone. Everyone gets pushed over the edge once in awhile, right? right?
