I can’t help it. I mean I can, if I work on it, but the impulse is so hard to control.
I’d like to say that I am an impassioned person to justify my impulse to react, but that’s not fair.
I got into it with the new boyfriend over a topic near and dear to my heart- using contraceptives. I’m for, he’s against. Regardless of where you stand on the issue, I did get mad at his stubbornness and failure to see why my point of view (i.e. my accidental mom status has forever shaped my perceptions) makes me a little bit of a tyrant on the issue.
I kind of became a bit of a drama queen. I need to check that. It’s a new relationship, so I need to temper my expectations.
