It’s easy to become angry around negative experiences, but it’s important we deal with negative experiences so that anger doesn’t control us. We must control it.
Of course, when it comes to a terminal illness, it’s easy to see why people might feel angry and that’s expected of course, but perhaps their anger isn’t just about their terminal illness. Perhaps anger is the underlying trait that makes up who they are.
But some of us are just angry people. However, talking about how we feel can make a difference between acceptance and non-acceptance of our issues and illness, particularly a terminal one. Sadly, the thought of being terminally ill can bring about a negative and angry response, but can also bring about positive feelings too, particularly in the early stages.
When someone is initially diagnosed there a slight determination for that person to remain upbeat about their illness. They have a sense of commitment to fight and remain positive in the initial stages of their illness.
And although initially it’s the patient that has to deal with his or her illness, their family also need to work through their illness too. When our loved ones are angry all the time, it makes it hard for us to cope. Nobody wants to be around angry people.
Unfortunately, anger will always stop a person from finding a level of calm and acceptance. But achieving that can in some cases make a difference to their emotional and physical recovery.
