Have you ever been mad at someone when you know they did nothing wrong?

This morning I woke up really grumpy and tired. My mother was at the computer and when she saw me walking out my room, she turned towards me to talk to me, asking me how I sleep and if I want breakfast. I don't know why but I just yelled at her to leave me alone and told her to be less annoying. A while later, I was less grumpy and realized I shouldn't have yelled at her. Luckily she wasn't mad at me though I still apologized. Have this ever happened to you?

Hi anime~ Yes, I was like this alot when I was young! My Mom, I guess learned to just igore me and when I was civil again would just pick up like nothing happened! I am still sort of that way in the morning since I am so not a morning person as neither is my Mom!lol This reminded me of when I was younger and I am getting ready to go visit my Mom who is now 80 and you would never believe it if you saw her, and I am 57! It made me smile and sort of made me look forward to my visit! Thanks anime! I really needed that little bit of incentive to book my flight and get ready to go see my Mom!

I guess my mother also ignores my bad behavior when I am in a bad mood. It's funny how much our parents tolerate us. I still learn to apologize when I get grumpy and mean at my mother for no good reason though. And you're welcome, Opal! Enjoy your visit with your mother.

Herro animegirl334 I think, if honest, we have all done this. Maybe we don't feel good, maybe we didn't get enough rest, maybe we are in pain... I know when I was in the hospital with a GI Tube and in pain, I wasn't real patient with people. If my pain level is higher than usual, I can be grumpy with my husband. Has he done something, no probably not, I'm the grouch. Do I apologize, yes. Prosperous mylotting

You had a good reason to be in a bad mood, you were in the hospitable and you were in pain. I think your husband would understand why you weren't in a good mood. My reason was less good, I was grumpy because I sleep on the wrong side of the bed. Well, as long as we don't do it that often and always apologize right?

Herro animegirl334 I think recognition of our behavior is the most important and then apologizing and asking forgiveness.

Hello TexLadyPj, I think you are right that knowing we are wrong is more important than constantly apologizing but I also think that when we recognize that we are wrong we should apologize to the person that we wronged. People should never keep saying sorry if they don't mean it but apologizing is important.

Sometimes our parents' care for us can be annoying, though their care has nothing wrong. Morning is the time when peoples always in bad temper. I yelled to my mom several times too, when she exhorted me again and again. It's sometimes really annoying.

Yes, sometimes parents can care too much. I guess it is because we matter a lot to them so they are concerned with our every move. My mother wasn't really that bad this morning though, I was just in a bad mood. I think I get more grumpy when I sleep longer and since I sleep more during summer break, I am more grumpy -__-

Hi, animegirl334 Yes, I have been. I would express this same kind of anger towards my mother-in-law. I am like this when I am frustrated of being in her house with her. Just seeing her face makes me feel very annoyed. Your mom is very sweet, for not getting mad at you for yelling at her. I am sure she understood that you was just having one of those days that you were not in the mood to be bothered with.

You should practice or learn how to control yourself so that you won't hurt anybody's feelings. Your mother surely knows you well so did not get mad in your eyes but deep inside her she was hurt. Yes I got mad sometimes but I did not yell just keep it to myself and think that she/he did make any wrong to me. and if I did I just look into his/her eyes.

Not really maybe just suspicious person like i just felt they do something wrong with me even without arguments. their is something in me telling me not to get so close or lose interest with them when i learn some are conniving to ruin my reputation. Although this types of annoying people does not directly tell me with the way they act in front of me is enough for me to feel mad when they disregard me constantly. Some situation when i am not in the mood i could yell too but hopefully those people around me understand my situation especially during my period i really felt so reckless and uncomfortable.
