I Feel, Therefore I Fight

The older I get, the worse I seem to be at fighting. When having a conversation in which there are differences of opinion, most of the time I feel like a little kid who's losing a game and just wants to stand up and throw the game on the floor instead of talking things out like a grown-up. Yesterday I actually had to think, "Am I acting like a five-year-old, or a grown-up?" before I responded. Not surprisingly, my initial reaction was to act like a five-year-old, so I changed. Instead of ignoring the situation and stomping off like a child, I tried to express myself and work things out. It was a good step at growing up....although I'm sure I've got a ways to go! :)
