We’ve all been cooped up in the house together for way too long because and everything came to a head this afternoon. I basically lost my cool and yelled at Elliott who was pushing my buttons. I swore at him and that is unacceptable. I should have been the adult but I was apparently incapable in that moment. There are reasons for my current demeanor but those reasons only explain why I snapped, they don’t excuse it.
Anyway, we ended up having a family meeting and hashed some things out. I apologized to everyone for yelling and I’m going to go walking before I take the kids to therapy tonight.
I don’t really want to go walking but I clearly need the constructive outlet.
We have bad weather blowing in and if I leave now, I just might finish up before we have white out snow conditions.
Through this blog, I try to teach based on my experience. Sometimes you can learn what to do and other times, like today, you can learn from my very obvious mistakes.
No one is perfect and that absolutely applies when it comes to me as well.
Unfortunately, it takes a pretty mature person to learn from another’s mistakes. And then, that mature person may have already found out the hard way!
