Shame, Shame, Shame...

I yelled at my 4 year old today. Pretty badly, too. I really lost my temper and as I was yelling I was thinking, "what are you doing? Stop yelling at her! Why are you so mad?!?!?" It was crazy because it was just something so insignificant that I was yelling about. I finally stopped and got a hold of myself and as I saw her crying I felt such shame! Immense shame! What was my problem? So, I took the time to apologize, explain my anger, and apologize again. I am trying to stop the yelling. It's a trait I inherited from my mom and her mom and her mom and probably her mom. It's been a rough ride, but I can see some improvement. Being able to blog sure helps. :)
