What is the definition of attitude?  According to attitude the the "manner, disposition, feeling, position, etc., with regard to a person or thing; tendency or orientation, esp. of the mind: a negative attitude; group attitudes."

Yes, we at some point get an attitude about something, whether it be a particular issue that upsets us greatly (i.e. politics or religion) or something that's happened to us (i.e. car accident).  Sometimes we get attitudes just because we don't feel good or other reasons that are unexplainable.  I have a huge attitude problem, and it's probably because I wear my feelings on my sleeve.  You WILL know when I'm mad, upset, happy, or just really pissed off, I do not hide it very well.  I may slam doors, throw my shoes, or stomp around the house.  I express myself in many ways, and it's not always in the words I say.  I try not to say things that hurt people but sometimes my attitude gets in the way and they come out.  Now, we all say and do things that we do not mean to hurt people but often times these words cut a deep wound in our souls and our actions can do the same.  Can we change that?  Absolutely.  No one can tell you to change or tell you how, that is something that you have to want and work on for yourself.  This is all part of being successful in my goals of changing who I am.  Now many of you know the course of my childhood, which I care not to revisit.  However, I am changing my attitude because that is what's shapes me and my experiences in life.  However, I'm not letting it take over my life, which includes an attitude change!  My attitude needs to change toward my family of three, my daughter, and my boyfriend, both of whom I love very much.
