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.

    Glad you have a friend you could talk it out with. They are the best.

    Possible to avoid the tormenter? If so, great. If not, you may want to just ask that person not to speak badly about the person you love in front of you. Good luck.
