Have you ever?

Have you ever?

Yelled at your children for no reason other than that they were annoying you?

Have you ever?

Said some thing to someone because you knew it would hurt their feelings?

Have you ever?

Felt like a total outcast for no other reason than that you allowed yourself to?

Have you ever?

Done something that you are totally ashamed of?

I haven’t (said with tongue in cheek).

I was just wondering if you had.

  1. From Belgium says

    Ahem, yes I have said things to people to hurt their feelings. Mostly to people who bullied me as a child ( I have ADD and dyscalculia, which results in practically lifelong bullying).
    No, I am not proud of that. But when someone made your life a living hell for years on end it is very hard not to strike back when the occasion occurs.
    And in case you wanted to know, yes I made those people cry. I can be the worst, most evil bitch in the galaxy when needed. But mostly I am nice though *coughcough*

  2. I don’t think you have done these things. I, on the other hand, have done all of them just this morning and it’s only like 7am. Some days I suck and I know it. Luckily I make up for them with awesomeness on at least 2 other days every week. Yeahright.

  3. Guilty – and feeling it! Took the kids to the library yesterday and got so overwhelmed that I was guilty of at least one of those!

  4. I don’t think there’s anyone in the whole world who can say that they haven’t. We’re all human, after all, and that means we’re capable of great things… and great meanness.
    Here’s to a future of great things and less meanness. πŸ™‚

  5. mmmm..guilt coming on…

  6. Guilty of all of the above….

  7. Wow – 3 out of 4 for me. (Hangs head.)

    I desperately try not to say anything that would purposefully hurt someone’s feelings – really. Mean words are a waste of oxygen. But then I have to think, how many times did I not realize that what I said caused a mark?

    That’s probably in the millions.

    Damn woman, it’s too early for self-reflection πŸ˜‰ Coffee!

  8. funny how this prompt brought on feelings of guilt πŸ™‚

    this is the same prompt i did too.
    .-= Amy´s last blog ..Have you ever? =-.

  9. Yes, yes I have πŸ™‚

  10. I did this same prompt… but your post made me feel a little bad!

    What’s up with that??

  11. Yes, yes, yes and yes…to all of the above. Oh well….
    .-= Rachel @ Mommy Needs a Vacation´s last blog ..Wordful Wednesday: My Husband Rocks =-.

  12. I NEVER yell at my children. For ANY reason. Especially not JUST because they are BUGGING the CRAP out me. NEVER.

  13. Yes, yes, yes, and a big fat YES. Now I’m gonna do something nice for my kids, before I yell at them again.
    .-= Mama Mary´s last blog ..get ur vlog on =-.

  14. I honestly think anyone who says no to any of these is either a saint, a liar, or has no conscience!

  15. Nope. Haven’t done any of those.

    Have you ever… lied on someone’s comment page? πŸ™‚

  16. Have you ever left a mean comment on someone’s blog? I have. But not this time, I like this prompt and yes I have done all those things.

  17. I am sure I can think of a few things I have done that I am ashamed of, but of course, I will not get into details =)

  18. Jennifer B says

    I admit to every one of those. Not anything that is normal for me, but at sometime or another I did them all

  19. Some days I feel like the sole purpose for my boys is to see how long it takes them to make me loose my patience!

    .-= Jacki´s last blog ..Happy Birthday to Meeeee…. =-.

  25. Yes. I. Have. This morning I yelled at my dogs for barking too loudly. And the other night I lied and told my children that it was bedtime….but it wasn’t.

    Hugs and Mocha,
    .-= Stesha´s last blog ..Predictable =-.

  26. Well, glad to know you are human too. I think yes to all four.

  27. oh yes. more times then I want to admit πŸ˜‰

  28. Being that I love to ride a unicycle, I thought it imperative that become a Circus Follower. And yes, in a stretched moment, I have yelled at my kids without good reason….when they were little. Not so much now.

    And Yes, I have done stupid, shameful things when young…who hasn’t? I like to think I have grown out of that.

    Keep the Balance,

  29. Yes, No, Yes, Yes…. Nobody’s perfect right? I will never claim to be.
