angry woman yellingI'm generally a happy person. I set my intentions every morning to practice patience and compassion. And most of the time, I roll with whatever comes my way.

But I have my triggers. Moms, do you know what I'm talking about? It happens when you're at your weakest. You're exhausted, you've had a frustrating day, and someone (probably some little person) pushes you a hair too far and YOU LOSE IT.

It's okay. We all do it from time to time. That's why you'll love this supercut video of lady rage -- women in TV and movies unleashing their fury. You're gonna want to bookmark this one!

AHHHH! I feel so much better now. Don't you?

I love how it builds slowly, with Amy Adams looking genuinely surprised at her own rage. The tempers rise with Amy Poehler's "NO!" And Kristen Wiig destroying that giant, stupid cookie in Bridesmaids. Then dishes come crashing to the ground. Kerry Washington's Olivia Pope lets slip that something has NOT! been handled after all. There's a lot of screaming, a lot of punching and throwing.

And finally, Angelina Jolie calmly fires off a few rounds just before Jennifer Lawrence shoots an arrow right through an apple in someone's hand.

Did you catch that? After all the tantrums, the women become focused. Focused and effective.

I don't know about you, but I think there's something inspiring about that. I love that this video doesn't end with a total meltdown of a woman crying helplessly in a heap. Nope. In this little tale of fury, we harness that anger and we get stuff done.

Now you can really relate, right, moms?

After you lose it and yell at your kids, you send them to their rooms to THINK ABOUT WHAT THEY'VE JUST DONE. Or you and your husband go to your separate corners to cool off. And then you do some thinking, too. You get hyper-focused about what you need to change, what rule needs to be tweaked, what new strategy you need to try, what kind of help you need to reach out for.

Sometimes rage is a wake-up call to fix something. And that's what we moms do. We fix things. So save this video the next time you surrender to fury. And don't be ashamed. Feel empowered.

How did this video make you feel?
