WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

How Do You Deal With Anger

(story submitted by Pissed, a Chestist)

I am pissed.  Lately though I feel like I'm always feeling that way.  The thing is I'm getting so angry in my professional life that it's spilling over into my personal life and I don't know how to stop it from happening. 

Too many people aren't doing what they say, not listening, or not doing things well.  I get so frustrated and angry and then when I should be off doing something totally unrelated, I'm still frustrated and angry and it just sucks.  I want to leave it where it belongs, at work.  {end story}

How do you deal with anger (and/or frustration) so that it doesn't follow you like a shadow?

      We’ll give you that a lot of p[eople suck…but most? Does it really seem that way to you? That’s hard. Why’s it? Let us know if you feel like sharing.

    Maybe you need to do something before you leave work like write down all the stuff that has pissed you off that day. Or tell someone. Or just say it all out loud. Really loud where no one can hear. Purge, in a way. It probably won’t get rid of all the frustration, but it could help.

    I’ve been swallowing my anger lately – doing whatever I can to move past it in the moment. I worry it will come back to bite me with something like an ulcer because I’m not sure if I’m letting it go or holding it in.

    Andie, you’ve got to get it out some how, some way. Keeping it bottled up is never good for you in the long run. Let. It. Go. XO, FMB
