Today is one of those days where I really want to just punt a small child. An evil small child, good children don't deserve to be punted.
I have morals.
Nothing happened, I literally woke up and on my way to work started crying over a stupid joke that would normally not offend me. I just felt this flood open up behind my eyeballs and this feeling of anger and futility washed over me.
My boyfriend was very confused, and the people around us probably thought he just dumped me.
My family has spoken of my infamous temper that showed its first inklings as a toddler. My first word was "eso" (in english: that) And i used it conjunction to anything that captured my fancy. I wanted it all, and by golly fuck all y'all I was gonna get it. So I'd plant my feet, raise my clenched little fists and scream/grunt out of my q-tip shaped head :"EEEEEEEEEEEESSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I know if I ever do decide to have children, there will be a major ass kicking from karma for this.
As I grew older, I learned to suppress my anger, especially after I started acting out violently to those I loved most. I was a spanked child, and after a while I didn't see anything wrong with hitting first or hitting back. This is why spanking is mostly counter intuitive, unless you want to raise a socio-pathic Jackie Chan.
But as the law of energy goes, it doesn't disappear, it just transfers to something else. And it became through my tears. I just started to leak, at the slightest provocation. And I was mocked, oh boy, how I was mocked.
My family thought I was being melodramatic. Boyfriends thought I was manipulative. Friends thought I was suicidal.
I thought I was wussy.
But fuck them, I'm not. I may throw tantrums over little things and I may cry when I see a dog die in movies, but I rarely hurt people I love. I have always owned up to being wrong. I have been stoic and strong when it mattered for others more than myself. I have cried with people when they needed to not feel so alone.
So what, am I gonna cry about it?
You betcha, motherfucker.
