Growing up, I had a plan. I had a plan for who I wanted to be and I knew what I had to do to get there. I followed through with that plan, then, all hell broke loose.
The plan I so carefully put together and was acting upon, fell apart.
I was angry. I am still angry. I often hear it said that I shouldn’t be angry. I should be grateful. Grateful for what?! My life didn’t turn out the way I planned. What exactly do I have to be grateful about?
I hate being told that I should not be angry. That is crap. I am angry. I have plenty to be angry about. Not just the fact my plan didn’t work out. Other things happened to me as well that angers me.
Plenty people have not had the life they planned, and guess what, they are angry too. They have every right to be angry. So do I.
Anger is an emotion. It shouldn’t be stifilled. We shouldn’t be running around telling folks not to be angry. Our anger needs to be expressed.
So lets express it. Tell folks how you really feel. Write about it. Talk to your therapist if you have one. Screw silence. Screw holding it in. Be angry. It’s our right.
