The Ugliness of Anger
A few weeks ago, I was walking to my car in a busy parking lot. A young lady sat in her idling car two spots away from mine. I could hear her conversation even with the car's windows raised! Her husband was on the line and his voice was coming through her car speakers. I heard him say, "I DO love you! You were the one who filed for divorce!" I shouldn't have been so curious, but I sat in my car watching. I couldn't hear her this time, but boy, did her face look ugly as she yelled back at him. It made me ashamed for ever yelling at MY husband. I thought, "Do I look like that when I yell?"
I was so embarrassed for ever raising my voice and interrupting him that I immediately called him at work and, in the softest, loveliest voice I could manage, told him how much I missed him and loved him and what a great guy he was. He is an amazingly hard worker, and a wonderful cook too!
I never want to forget how ugly that woman looked as she was screaming, and I never want to let my husband see me with that kind of face.
