I was laid off a few months back, and my wife's business has slowed down dramatically. We have both been really stressed financially lately, and have been taking it out on each other. I suppress my frustrations until I BLOW up! The other day I blew up by yelling, throwing a bag across the room, and slamming the refrigerator door several times angrily. The worst part is that my 4 year old daughter witnessed the whole thing. I feel awful for what she saw, and it kills me to think she'll probably remember this forever. I can almost see myself from a third persons perspective as it is happening, and I'm telling myself don't do it, don't do it, don't do it....but I just can't stop myself. How do I learn to calm down in the moment, and repair the relationships with my wife and daughter?
