As a child I was angry, suffice it to say I was irritated and angry. Irritated by the injustice, I would verbally hit out.
I didn’t understand my emotions around a disability I didn’t know I had, but with help I know I could have minimised those feelings. I didn’t know to feel or deal with my emotions that much was clear. It wasn’t my fault.
Extreme anger stems from a build-up of small irritations, some of those irritations come from your present thinking, something happens, a person rubs you up the wrong way and the emotion you’re suppressing floods to the surface.
We must learn to stand back, it’s the only way we get to feel the emotion.We need to give ourselves time to work through each perspective, to try to understand why we feel what we feel.
Anger doesn’t wait to strike, it hits at inconvenient times, when we’re not always prepared to deal with it. When we delay dealing with anger that’s when it turns toxic, particularly when the delay means we avoid it altogether. We must deal with the anger we feel. We must stop blaming the entire universe for our problems.
We must take and own our responsibility, how the situation led us to where we are, others must do the same for themselves, also.
