Not Letting Anger Destroy My Family!

It is not easy for me to share deep personal issues, I am a very private person but I really felt the Lord’s nudging in sharing my anger issues with other women in hopes to encourage them. So today I’m at The Better Mom for the Grouchy to Great sharing my personal testimony of what anger can do to your family and hopefully give you some hope if you struggle in this area too!

Would your kids say you yell a lot? A recent survey says so. Do you struggle with anger at home, but have a happy face you put on when you go out? You are not alone. It's more common than you think. But as a mom, there is something you can do about your anger. Read these practical steps you can take to be a happier mom at home. Don't let anger destroy your family.

    I just read this post on not letting anger destroy your family today and I have to say I struggle with this. I have prayed and continue to pray for help with an anger issue. I was raised in a yelling household. When my husband was meeting my family 17 years ago, we were talking later and just couldn’t believe how we all talked to each other. Everyday conversation sounded like we wanted to kill each other and nothing at all was wrong..in fact, it was a very happy time for all of us. The longer I lived away from my family and would go back to visit, the more I began to see what he meant. Now I don’t want that anger, but I see it in them more and more and they don’t understand. It has been very frustrating and emotional. Sometimes I think I have it together and one little thing sets me off. I always say I won’t let it happen again, and every time it does….it’s a vicious circle. Thank you for sharing this, I know now there is hope.

      Amy,
      My biggest words of advice are DON’T GIVE UP. Set some goals on this issue, and have a plan. Things such as when this happens I’m going to do this. Maybe it’s a time out or a bubble bath. When you fail apologize and get right back to working harder for the next time. It is easy to give up when you are struggling but when you blow your stack, think about how you can handle it different next time and work toward that. I know YOU CAN DO IT! I will be praying for you!
