smothering the embers
Wednesday, January 09, 2013
Since last night, I've been sitting with anger. Triggered by a person I already don't think much of, making mean, hurtful statements about someone I love.
Lashing out would have done nothing to help the situation.
Luckily, I had a friend with me that I could talk things out with. That helped a lot.
I've also written my feelings down, trying to get them out.
My normal response to something like this would be walk away and stuff the feelings down. Eat the anger.
I'm trying something different this time. Talking. Writing.
But staying on program.
