    Do you ever Cry because you are MAD?

    Today, for the first time in a very long time, a conversation I had made me so MAD I almost couldn't hold back the tears. I wasn't sad at all, just furiously defensive over a comment someone made. And tears didn't come spilling down my face, although it was a Herculean effort on my part to keep them back.

    Isn't that frustrating, to be angry and defensive and then cry? I hate it! I don't want the other person to think I'm weak or sad, I was neither, just royally smoked.

    Ugh.

    I'm not a big confrontal person to begin with. Last week I confronted someone at work, and after she walked off, I could feel the tears welling up. I had to go to the bathroom and cry it out so no one would know.

    Oh, I know what you mean. I really wanted to have a nice long cry after this thing today, but it was time to get the girls from the daycare and go home. So I sulked instead.

    People should just be nicer!

    I totally agree! I'll get really angry, begin to cry, and then get even madder when people try to hug or comfort me. I'm not SAD I'm ticked! Don't try to hug me! :)

    I almost always cry after I get mad and get into a confrontation with someone. So I try to always stay calm now so I wont have to deal with that. And it always makes the other person more mad if you're calm!

    Oh yes, when I get mad, the tears just roll. I agree, I avoid those situations because I don't want to cry in front of the offender.
