Vision and Clarity
Thinking of this today reminded me of the time Patrick broke my glasses. I was really angry. Glasses are so expensive. He didn't just crack the frame, he broke a lense too. I was so, so, upset. Obviously we found a way to replace them. It was all my fault too, I had left them out instead of putting them away when I put my contacts in.
It took me a few days to get perspective on this incident. He didn't set out to break them. He wasn't trying to hurt me or make me angry.
I probably won't express this properly but I'm going to try. This was the end of my anger. I don't get angry AT him any more. It's like a switch flipped. I used to get angry all the time without being able to moderate myself. Slights were seen where they didn't exist. Everything the boys did they were doing "to me". Then after this incident....no more. I like the new me much better.
