Holding onto anger is only doing more damage to yourself than anything else. Free yourself from it and let it go.
Anger is a strange emotion. Sometimes, we like to feel angry. And anger is a good emotion. It tells us when something isn’t right, or maybe it’s because we are on the wrong path.
Anger can be a guide. If we take the time, to really dig deep we discover anger has more to do about ourselves then with the person or situation who caused us to become angry.
Angry can also put us into much needed action that will change the course of our lives. So therefore, if you feel angry for a couple days, maybe even a week or two….that’s okay. That’s normal.
Anger is normal.
But, if you have been living day after day for weeks, months or even years…..you have to let that shit go. Holding on to that type of anger….is dangeroulsy depriving you from the joys and positives in our precious lives.
I have been angry for a long time. Somedays, I’m in denial about it. Somedays, it’s right there on my surface of my thoughts.
I was angry at a situation that happened over a year ago. I had no control over that situation. I still don’t have control over it. That situation is long gone. Yes, the ripple effects are still taking effect but it’s out of my control.
The past few days, the ripple effects currently going on…have my thoughts and emotions going backwards to where it all started. It has brought up these feelings so hard my body is physically reacting, with a rapid heartbeat and tense shoulders.
I realized this morning, that the feelings surfaced….only because I still allow them to exist within my body and mind.
Time to let that anger go.
I did a weird ritual this morning, to let it go. I took a shower and envisoned all that anger and negative feeling being washed out of me. Going right down the drain to a place to get cleansed and recirculating back into the world.
It surpriseling made me feel a lot better. I feel a lot calmer and peaceful.
I know, it’s not a total fix. Things will occur and triggers may come up. But, for now I’m choosing to not focus on anger when it arises. I choose peace instead.
