Short on Empathy
Today was a rough day.
It just sucked.
I had to hold my son down.
He destroyed his brother’s handmade craft.
He threw things at his other brother, twice.
He cheated in the games he was playing
and became violent when the kids didn’t want to play with him anymore.
I cried out loud as I desperately held his door shut during a rage.
And I cried some more after.
Today, I’m short on empathy.
I feel angry, tired and simply pissed off at his behavior today.
Tonight, he told me he was sorry.
Now... I feel sad.
