    I am in a dating relationship with an Ifa believer. One day he was yelling abusively at me for not listening to him when he asked me to send a blank email with an attachment. The yelling became so intense (to me) thay I yelled back at him to shut up. He jumped out the car, left me in an unfamiar area, and quit talking to me foe a week. The next time he contacted me he said he couldn’t deal with me because I was too emotional. Now he sends me this article.

      Sometimes an article can trigger that kind of response. It would be interesting in learning what triggered his outburst. As you may remember from the article; I submitted that fear, more often than not, is the trigger behind an over the top emotional response. You may want to have this conversation with him where both of you explore the fears behind your overly emotional behavior.

    I remember seeing a young lady at a baby shower, who was angrily emotional. She reminded me of a younger version of myself. I understood her frustration, she was being over looked, and ignored by her mother. Of course, their reason had a lot to do with her hostile reaction. She stormed out, yelling, cussing, and fussing. I end up going outside a little bit after. As I approached where she was sitting, I asked her if she was okay. Immediately, she explained her frustration in detail, and I listened, then, I gave her my experience. I explained to her that I would always end up looking like the bad guy, because of my hostile disposition, and that, I was often overlooked. I didn’t want to directly tell her that she contributed to her mother’s reaction, so, I indirectly used my own anger issues to help her see that my former way of expressing myself is what caused me to look like the bad guy. I believe she understood.
