So after my pity party yesterday (which I only allowed to last half an hour) I felt some better. I have found that if I'm worried, mad, sad, etc, and I allow myself a certain amount of time to totally devote to it, I can let it go and move on after.
Today when I get up for real not just a wake up like now at 2 am, I will make a plan for the day. Other than the county nurse coming I have no plans. But I will!!!

    SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD PLAN HOLLY.
    JUST DON'T OVERDO IT.
    I USED TO DO MY EXERCISES WITH TEARS IN MY EYES AND FEELING SORRY FOR MYSELF. THEN I'D SAY...IT WILL GET BETTER, OVER AND OVER, THEN TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND CARRY ON.
    YOU ARE SUCH A POSITIVE PERSON, I'M SURE YOU'LL BOUNCE BACK REALLY QUICKLY................REALLY. emoticon

    Good for you. Sometimes, wallowing (which is what I allowed the other day) helps us get through it quicker. Set that plan and make it happen.

    That is exactly what I tell people I do when I have strong, negative emotions - I feel them and complain and bitch and carry on emoticon emoticon emoticon - and I DO feel better the next day! emoticon There have been times when I felt rotten one full day and just felt it. I hope your nurse gives you some needed support and ideas for strengthening yourself. Love, Chelsea emoticon

    Now that you've examined the rage, and didn't suppress it, you can go on with your plans that anger is not a realistic option!! Unresolved fears are what generally 'triggers' it, but that's why giving yourself that certain amount of time is sooo necessary because it can easily spiral out of control and, like a two-edged sword, hurt both ourselves and hurt others too. Your patience was an excellent way to 'embrace' all the feeling but then... to allow yourself to have compassion for you and that's not a pity party, Holly.

    Well, I'm sooo ***happy*** you're not gonna let yourself be bossed around by justifying, protecting or feeding that kind of feeling!! Pop psychology offers i.e. beating our fists into pillows or screaming at walls as a therapy for 'doing' something with that negative energy, but it only 'feeds' the 'seed' where... what you did, by waiting and offering yourself time, and instead of applying aggression you applied the opposite - compassion, or non-anger.

    Anyway... to let anger go is ideal, since it poisons our minds and causes rifts between us and our loved ones. emoticon

    We all get down, and there's nothing wrong with a small pity party. But Kudos for making a plan! xoxo
