I’m 99% angel, but oh, that 1%, particularly my grouchiness… Grouchiness is in my nature as well as nurture, though luckily that grouchy nature got diluted a bit by sprinkles of humour by the time it got to me from my dear grandma.
My dear nanna was not just a grouch, but a Super Grouchy Grouch. Being a bit of a perfectionist, she always puts a lot of effort into everything 😉 . I do not blame her though – she did have a tough life. Still love my tough grouchy nanna. 🙂
No matter how hard I am trying to tame grandma’s grouchy genes, every now and then they pop out, especially when I get under pressure. While I never learned to manage pressure without grouchiness, fortunately, my nearest and dearest learned to manage my grouchiness with grace.
If you have a grouch in your family, do not let his or her grouchiness to wind you up. Respond with a joke or simply give your family grouch a smile, a hug and/or a kiss. Though you might not see any warm response behind the grouchy surface, deep inside your grouch will be pleased. 😉 That might be all your grouch needs to get over it. 🙂
Also, keep your grouch well fed to prevent him or her from getting hAngry. 😉
