Reactions

Do you have someone in your life that you have to be on your best behavior around?

I have had some things happen recently that opened my eyes to how I have been treated over my lifetime.

Here are a few examples..

Have to get up the courage to tell your spouse that you bounced a check.. and fearful that he will yell and scream and hit you (again)

You drop something and it breaks and instead of them asking if you are okay, they yell at you for what you did and tell you how stupid you are and how much you upset them.

A child spills something and the caregiver or parent just screams at the child for 20 minutes while cleaning it up instead of calming the child and making the best of it.

You accidentally leave your purse/wallet at home or work and realize after your hour long commute and get yelled at for being stupid and irresponsible.

You put a little surprise in your boyfriend's car and don't shut the door hard enough and it drains his battery and he is then stranded and unable to run errands until you get home from work.  But this time, he says it is no big deal and you laugh about it... instead of people in your past who would have screamed at you, put you down, slapped you and most likely demanded you get home right away to fix the problem.

Which way would you respond and which scenarios have played out in your life and were laughed off instead of causing verbal and physical abuse to occur?

It is amazing to me what goes on and just how people treat others in their life. I pray everyone has a calm relationship and not one full of strife.

I pray that you have the courage to speak to your spouse or significant other and work things out so you have a peaceful home and peaceful conversations.  Arguing and yelling is not healthy at all.
