i seldom get mad, like hot headed or ‘anger-management-required’ kind of mad. as much as possible, i try to remain calm and just wait for that moment to pass. because i am really not good with confrontation. i either just cry or shout. when i cry, i tend not to say anything and get regarded as weak. when i shout, i blurt out words i really don’t mean and i really feel bad right after.
how come getting mad has become such a complicated issue for women?
so i just breathe. that’s all i do. inhale-exhale. until the moment passes, and my head is cool again. then i become rational again. then i regain composure again.
but somehow…i would like to really shout.
isn’t shouting a form of breathing too?
