is for Yelling
And bad tempers and rage and exploding frustration.
Why are we so quick to get mad?
I feel like everywhere I go people are angry and upset, and taking it out on other people. People who often have nothing to do with the mad guy's problems in the first place.
When did we become such a temperamental society? Or have we always been that way? Maybe humans are an angry species.
And how would our lives be different if we just took a deep breath, counted to ten, and let it go?

Dude, you're almost done! Can you believe it??ReplyDelete
Same to you!! You've commented on every single letter! We'll both relieved when this is over!Delete
People are mad these days at a lot of things, and usually whoever comes along will suffice for them to dump on. Economics, job market, debt, the high cost of even low living, seniors, dogs, etc.ReplyDelete
We expect instant gratification, and we want it now. Isn't that a set-up for disappointment? Flatten those organizations (too much at the top), and get prices and salaries back to the average person's level. That might be a start.
I think you're right about instant gratification. I know my kids expect it. Good point.Delete
People are frustrated with so much and don't know what to do with it.ReplyDelete
I love that song. Thanks for sharing!

I'm a very calm person who doesn't need anger management...uh, until I get in a car.ReplyDelete
Well, I have to admit I have issues with bad drivers too.Delete
Some people, like my so-called fiancé's mother, were probably never taught how to express themselves in a calm, mature fashion, and only saw yelling and poor communication modeled growing up.ReplyDelete
Hmm... Am I sensing some family issues here? :) It's really hard to deal with people like that because no matter how kindly you try to talk to them about things, they always blow it out of proportion.Delete
I think I am mostly calm until something keeps eating and eating away at my patients continually. Then, I might snap. I usually try techniques to prevent it, but on rare occasions, I do get really angry.ReplyDelete
Good point. We do all get worn down eventually.Delete
I think it's that we've gained more stress but less ways to relieve it. Or, we're not taking advantage of the ways to relieve it.ReplyDelete
We certainly live in a society where stress is heaped and heaped upon us! It's hard to deal with it all.Delete
This is my biggest problem :( And I haven't always been as angry as I am now. Having kids has turned me into a crazy angry person! I'm not saying it's their fault, but somehow I just cannot deal with the frustrations of motherhood in a calm manner. And Rachel is learning anger from me, which is terrible. I guess I just have to keep trying to use the techniques I've learned to react in a better way. I could use some more ideas, though!ReplyDelete
I do know I need to get plenty of sleep and eat at regular intervals (preferably healthy stuff). That makes a huge difference. Maybe that's true for other people. It seems like our society as a whole is sleeping less and grabbing quick bites to eat whenever we have a break in our busy schedules.
I think you have a good point. People are seriously lacking in sleep and healthy eating habits, and it shows in our ability to cope with frustrating circumstances.Delete
Hey there, Yes, I have noticed that people do seem to be getting angrier. I think it is a combination of things, but probably mostly stress over the economy and how we are going to get through. It just seems that there is a major lack of manners in the world today, too. And teenagers, I think it has become a trend to be angry, like they think angry is cool or something. As for me I try to be a peaceful person, but I am only human and have been known to explode a time or two. Thanks for the video, that was a nice break.ReplyDelete
I agree, there is a real lack of manners, and self-censure. I feel like if people just thought for two seconds before they speak, a lot of problems could be avoided.Delete
The angry teen thing is also a good point. It is like a trend to be overtly angry and negative about everything!
I love your A - Z project! :)ReplyDelete
True, very true.ReplyDelete
