Sometimes you see it, sometimes you don’t.

I am not sure if I will have the opportunity to tell you exactly how I feel now in the future, so for the moment I am writing.

I love you and you love me but there many occasions that you make me angry.

You can see when I get angry. It is almost every time you :

  • Do the opposite of what you are told or asked to do
  • Want everything for yourself and disregard others
  • You don’t try at all and immediately ask for help
  • You don’t try enough and quit early
  • You are rude and impolite
  • You think I am here to solve all problems for you, now and in the future

But I love you unconditionally.

I understand that is part of your nature wanting to explore life, relationships, human interactions in order to understand life and manage you actions, reactions and character in this world. So sometimes I keep silent and calm. Sometimes you don’t see getting angry. It is when you :

  • test my limits before I burst. Yes I get angry along the way.
  • repeat to check if I mean what I say, with any possible way of interpretations and conditions.
