Why Does It have to be so hard?

No, that is not a dirty innuendo.  I am talking about life.  Women are emotional beings.  Well, most of us are.  I have met a few that were not and I remember in my 20's praying that I could be one of those women.  Most of us cry when we are angry, cry when we are sad, and cry when we are happy.  The crying when we are angry is the part that gets us most.  Men bosses have no idea how to handle that, and us women, well it just makes us more angry that we are responding with tears.

Yesterday I got in trouble for something trivial at work. I apologized, knew it was going to be blown out of proportion and when it was besides the tears, I responded by walking away. My boss responded by threatening to fire me if I didn't come back.  I didn't go back.

 I guess this all started with my last corporate job.  My mouth has always gotten me in trouble.  I say what I think regardless of the consequence. Usually I don't back down from a confrontation or a fight.  However, after I turned 50 my stance on that changed.  I walk away to keep my mouth and temper saying things I can't take back.
