monday motivation : anger

I’m typically not an angry person. I let go of things pretty quickly and, more often than not, give people the benefit of the doubt. But recently, I’ve found myself holding onto a lot more anger. And guess what? It gets me nowhere. Being angry is a fine emotion, but holding onto anger is dangerous and destructive. My goal for the week is to stop holding onto my anger for extended periods of time. Get angry and then move on. Life is too short to be pissed off all the time.

    Love that quote! After my Dad died I had a LOT of anger built up towards the truck driver that killed him. One day I was at the cemetery just sobbing, yelling and crying so hard I couldn’t breathe. I swear to you, I could hear my dad saying to me “let go of the anger, you need to heal.” Once I let go of the anger and hate, I finally was able to grieve and heal. Anger is a very powerful emotion!

      Oooo! This reminds me. Would you be willing to write a guest post on grieving? I am amazed at how composed you seem with everything you’ve gone through. You seem to be working through it in a very, very healthy way.

Comment Policy:I want BTHR to be a positive and upbeat place. Disagree all you want, but I trust you’ll do so in a civil and mature manner. Anytime folks get together in a place on the internet things can get a little bit sticky. I love that all of you guys are diverse and have differing opinions and I hope you’ll speak those for all to see! That being said, any comments that are spammy, snarky or full of personal attacks will be deleted without warning. .
