    Not My Finest

    Yep. I had a mini one this afternoon. I just can't control myself sometimes... My emotions, my anger... I can see i was being a spoilt little brat after it happens, but it won't stop it from happening next time. I don't think i was really that spoilt when i...

    I'm a Mess.

    I just feel like I can't control it. I go into rages, I cry, I scream sometimes... I really try not to. I try to keep it all under control but I guess it's just how I am... I can't help it sometimes..   I feel like a little child when this happens...

    It's part of my bipolar disorder.

    My mom has it, too, and my uncle. Our temper is just TERRIBLE! I wish i wasn't upset by petty things ad much as i am, and that will set me off, in itself, sometimes. Why do i embarrass myself so badly when i lose a game? Why do i go to my dark place when i get hurt by an...

    I wouldn't call them tantrums.

    That would be calling myself a brat. I just tended to cry and whine and sometimes stomp my foot when someone tried not to give me my way or called me out for doing something I had no business. No parent wants to bother punishing a kid who's so much trouble, right? My stepmother...

    I Know It Isn't Cool...

    Sometimes.....              Although I'm working to control myself, I get frustrated when things aren't where they should be.  When things aren't working properly and I yell.  I just get really angry deep down in my spirit...

    Listen To Me!

    At a young age, I learned that if people didn't believe me, the only thing I could do is to have a tantrum to get them to LISTEN. I thought this was a superpower, and was careful not to abuse it. I didn't pitch a fit if my words were not true, for example. I am guilty of...

    Even At My Age

    I know it's sad at my age, but sometimes the brat in me has to be let out and that's the way to do it. It works though so why not stick with it?! It's a method that never lets me down. I know I should act my age but ... That's life. You will do what you know worls to get...

    ...And I'm Not Proud of It....

    A few years ago, my middle daughter (5 at the time) showed me just what I looked like when I was having a fit...and it was not pretty... It was the morning rush to get off to school on-time.  Everyone was rushing to get backpacks, shoes, last minute bites of toast and swigs...

    Unfortunately, Yes.

    I do have tantrums more often than I'd like to admit. I tend to be very intense about the things I want and if by chance it doesn't work out I usually get really moody. So I hold it in, and it eventually turns into a full-blown tantrum. I've always had a bit of a short fuse, and...

    I had one two weeks ago.

    O_O Who the heck would have thought I would have thrown a tantrum!!! I'm not a kid anymore.. but look at me, kicking the floor and crying like a big baby. I was so angry because my sister disrespected me and I left the living room, pouting and I locked myself in my room then...
