From the mouths of babes...


How true, Mr. T. Sometimes ya' just gotta' get pissed. I mean sometimes we spend hours and even years in despair over how someone treated us or something didn't go our way.


And we get stuck. Mad stuck.


But if can go around that feeling of sadness and get underneath it maybe there is a bit of anger there too? This can be a trap anyone can fall into but especially those who have been taught to be a "good girl/boy and keep quiet". We learn to stuff anything that doesn't look like martyrdom.


Maybe when we were kids, saying we were or acting as if we were angry was shamed. Maybe we are constantly being told our anger is not okay as adults.


But I'm here to tell you anger is an okay emotion. Anger can motivate you and help you get to the next level in your thinking/healing/coping.


So the next time you think to go back to your old scripts of being the victim think about getting pissed. See where that gets you.
