Everybody feels bad once in a while. I don't mean sick, I mean everybody gets upset or cops an attitude or gets ticked off at something or someone. And everybody shows their emotions in different ways. So my question is...why can everybody else do it and not me???? Why can I get ticked off at somebody or something but when I raise my voice or "cop" an attitude, I get yelled at, put down, called names, accused of things I don't do?? Yet it's ok if someone else does it. If I say anything to that person, somehow it is my fault. It's been that way my whole life. My parents accused me of being mad when I really wasn't. My first husband accused me of having an attitude and being upset over something I could care less about. And now my husband is doing the exact same thing. Seems all I have to do is raise my voice, then boom...all of a sudden I'm yelling at him or I have an attitude. I admit, I do get upset once in a while, I do show my negative emotions a little more than I should I guess, but I don't scream and yell at someone and tell them how they feel. Shoot, I can't even say how I feel half the time cause someone else already knows or is telling me.. I guess I should be used to it by now but ya know what? It still bothers me. I can't be chipper 24/7. How do you all handle negative emotions? Are you happy all the time? Do other people tell you how you feel or how you are supposed to feel? Or do you lash back at them with no worries of repurcussions? Sorry for the rant, but thanks for listening.

I do have my episodes of feeling stressed. And I do understand what you are talking about. I get stressed out too. I feel like I can have an attitude at times myself.. With my emotions, I will just go some where and sit quietly and think for a while.. I will try to relax myself and calm down.. I also will pray this helps a lot too.

I'm currently single, working at home and far from any relatives; so any negative emotions I have get taken out toward the TV or on rare occasions here. I almost never let them show when I am out and encountering sales people or cashiers. But I also have no one right now to dump their negative feelings on me or to complain about mine. So I guess their are godd and bad sides to it.
