Excellent depiction of anger's power. My mother use to tell my son, "Anger keeps you from seeing straight." The message really came home to him during a visit with her when, in anger, he spun around and running into the breadboard, put quite a gouge into his arm. Now 28, he still refers to that occassion...and never fails to say, upon remembrance, "anger keeps you from seeing straight"
Thanks for a vivid illustration of that tremendous truth.

Blessings,

Very gentle lesson on out-of-control anger. Lovely to read.
This was well written. God bless you.

Nice read! I like the opening with dialog. When it switches from dialog to your feelings it would be better to show more than tell but it was a good entry and nice flow.
Anger does prevent us from seeing straight. It was good that as a young girl you learnt to deal with your anger. Many grownups don't. Good story.
