  1. How do you get past that anger? Do you just let it flow until it’s exhausted? If you want to know this was a good post, I’m about to cry over here because I get it. The anger keeps building up, I try venting it, but there’s more bitterness each and every time.

    On a more humorous note, what about when you’re right? What about when you tell someone “You’re doing it wrong. That path doesn’t suit you.” They rebel, and three months later come back, “You were right.” Had a friend that I knew her well enough I kept saying this, the cycle continued. And doesn’t help she’s the one I’m bitter with. 😛

    1. You acknowledge it. You put words to it and you don’t bury it, you release it because if you bury it, it’s still there…only it festers and turns ugly so it’s no longer anger but rage.

      So, put words to your feelings, express them and don’t bottle them up. Don’t be mean or cruel about it, if you can help it use measured words and weigh them carefully, but definitely acknowledge them.

      And in that case, “I told you so” is an awesome sentence lol

      1. Thanks. To all of the above. It’s hard to watch people you help, people who hurt you so badly and you were still there for them, get away with it. To watch them have everything you wanted with them. Like that whole neglected child. Every time I see a parent, I keep wondering why they get to be a parent, and I don’t have kids. But I am where I am, and nothing can change that. All I can do is alter the way I look at and approach life.

          1. Definitely! Something wonderful is bound to happen 😀


  2. No, you make plenty of sense. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with allowing yourself to feel anger (or whatever “negative” emotion it may be) and I agree that it’s not right to push people and tell them how they should be feeling in any given situation. That’s a quick way to isolate someone, or worse.

    That being said: Let the anger go, Jess! Come on already! 😉

    1. Lol writing this post was exactly what I needed to do let it go. Acknowledging your anger is the first step, the why. Then you can release it 🙂 I’m all good now!

  3. Lol, Oh Jessica do I ever know where you’re coming from! lol In fact, I am pretty sure we’ve sat together and did this on multiple occasions. I am just as guilty, sometimes you just can’t help it. Some people make it way too easy.
