I've got a lot of anger within me right now.

Thing is, it's not like I'm annoyed at anyone in particular. It seems more like an accumulated level of stress. I'm annoyed at people at work, people at church, my kids, my wife ... all for different reasons, and none of them which rises to the level of anything in particular.

But yesterday, it boiled over. I was snapping at people left and right, at a level far beyond what they deserved. At church, when I saw a bunch of kids throwing rocks at each other, I snapped and chewed them out something fierce. The looks I got back from them showed that I had just become one of those obnoxious uptight parents that flies off the handle.

I don't want to be that guy.
