Sometimes I want to be really mean
January 3, 2013 at 6:49 PM

But I stop, think and breath and can usually stop it.  What do you do to settle down?

    I have days when all I want to do is verbally beat someone to the point of making them cry....

    I hold it in and clean instead.

    OP, I have never seen you be "mean."

    I try to keep cool, I just put things in perspective.  I don't always succeed, sometimes it's OK to speak your mind.

    I can be, but usually in a long winded way in real life an here too maybe lol.  I can really lecture and ground those kids though I assure you lol.

    I often breath a bit after I say your grounded from_____  before I say for how long lol.  I want to say forever a lot lol.

    I used to clean a lot to overcome different stress in my  life.  Still do some, when hubby came home from the hospital last yr I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned lol.

     Meditate, prayer, and positive thoughts.

    According to my husband...I am too blunt to not be mean.  Whatever that means.  I try to hold my tongue and be nice.

    Ohio I don't think you are capable of being mean.

    I think sometimes I can be a total bitch and when that moment comes on I let it happen because a lot of times I am too nice. 

    I am not good at learning how to settle down and not get angry ... I find myself going from 0-100 in less than a second, something that could have happened over a year ago will set me off. I tried anger management... ok maybe for just one day but it didn't really tell me any thing I didn't already read about lol

    Depends on who it's aimed at. If it's someone who has annoyed me or been abrasive repeatedly I usually crack at some point. If it's a person whom I barely know or I don't encounter frequently I usually suck it up.

    well today, instead of being even a little mean, I'm going straight for the cookie AND an iced vanilla mocha.  I may even buy the person behind me a coffee just to help lighten my mood.

    I usually go to humor instead of being mean, sometimes I try reason, sometimes I try killing them with kindness but I would lying if I said I've never gone to the mean side either. I'm definitely not above being mean but I do try the other things first.
