feeling grumpy

' We have no more right to put our discordant state of mind into the lives of those around us and rob them of their sunshine and brightness than we have to enter their houses and steal their silverware.'

We have a bad day, and boy, do we feel grumpy!
At home or with friends, we take it out on those around us. Soon they're having a rough day, too.

That's not fair to them. It's fine to let people know we're feeling off, sad, or frustrated. It's not right to destroy their day just because ours
isn't going right.

We must use self-control to deal appropriately with our emotions. We can learn to laugh at our circumstances and at ourselves.

With that attitude, we can transform a bad day into a good one - for us and for our loved ones.

I have bad days sometimes. That's normal and I will be careful not to bring everyone else down too.
