I’m not sure if you read exactly what I wrote to him (if you click on the picture it pops open large enough to read).

In the moment I reacted which is something I never do. I actually pride myself on not reacting. I’m a firm believer in having no control over someone else’s actions or a situation that occurred. I only have control over my reaction and how I handle it.

I was sassy, inconsiderate, attacking and rude, so basically it was the rage unleashed. Sure I feel rage and anger, but I never act on it. Ever. Even if I need to take a minute, process and compartmentalize. I always handle myself with grace. That is why he came home. He’s never witnesses me to behave that way. Ever. It worried him and he needed to know I was okay.
