Wordless/Wordful Wednesdays:Mama Bear

As I know I've mentioned before, I am generally an anti-social person. For some strange and wonderful reason, this doesn't seem to affect my blogging but when it comes to real life friends I am very choosy.

Don't get me wrong, I am polite, but that's where my interaction with most people outside of my immediate circle of loved ones ends-unless you hurt someone I care about. Woe to the person who does something to hurt the ones I love.

This applies equally to anyone who might do something I consider wrong towards those I love-be they in laws that treat my Hubby like crap, or boyfriends who commit some dastardly deed, or another kid making fun of my kidlets, seeing one of them hurt makes me go all Mama Bear. I find myself with mixed feelings-part of me wants to pin the offender in a tree and (metaphorically) rip their heads off, and part of me wants to take my little bear in need of love and nurse them back to health.

Usually I choose the latter, and I spend my time baking cookies for my loved one and giving them lots of encouragement, but the whole time, on the inside, I feel like this:
So crappy relatives, *&%$! exes, neighborhood bullies, stupid bosses, IRS agents, or any one else who might be thinking of slighting my loved ones:

You've Been Warned.

It is amazing how that instinct just "roars" up inside us when someone near and dear is hurt/upset/in danger/etc...? To be honest I am pretty much the same way. I'll be cordial, but mess with someone close to my heart and you've asked for it. You have phrased it way better than I ever could, though. And that picture - Fierce!

It's a little bit scary :D

I definitely know how you feel!

I am very anti-social also, and just like you...it doesn't affect my blogging or Facebook life. I always find that odd. Anyway, when someone hurts the ones I love...I get very angry and I usually don't hold back from what I feel. I can be scary.

I love my friends, but I don't have many close friends. But I'm very happy with my two or three close girlfriends.

I think we all have a little mama bear inside us. I definitely do too.

You are not the only one who feels that way. I think the Mama Bear comes out in all of us when someone strikes out at someone we love. God help the sole who hurts my daughter or hubby.
