August 30, 2012 by Tom McG Please talk to this person. They may be shocked to their very core to learn you are frightened at what they may do. I had a temper but I always directed it inward; yelling at myself, hitting myself, the works. I worked hard to change when I learned that my little boy was scared of me because of my anger. I never directed ANYTHING towards him…I just didn’t know that anger is like a force field stretching out beyond me like a giant bubble. The bubble had nothing to do with my son, but when it burst, he still got wet. I just didn’t know.
