Surprise!! My temper is like raging cluster of volcanoes but less beautiful. It was definitely not wondrous, except that people wondered where all of that anger came from.
When I was young, I kept feelings bottled up. Then all of those feeling would come out like hot lava. It was never pretty or graceful. But it was always a surprise for somebody.
After going through a ton of therapists, I finally learned to recognize when it was time to express myself. It’s also helpful to learn when to really keep your mouth shut and write poetry or go to visit the punching bag at the coffee shop.
I miss that coffee shop . . . sigh.
So before I get to the raging volcanoes stage, I ask a ton of questions to figure out if I should be angry or if there was a misunderstanding. There have been several times that situations have been cleared up before I burned any more bridges.
Sometimes I have to let the bridges burn.
