If you struggle with anger, you know it’s hard to overcome like any other mental illnes. I‘ve always had anger problem, I just don’t like to talk about it. It almost sounds like I’m a complete bitch, but I’m not. I have feelings like everyone else, not just anger. I have the shortest fuse in the world some days, others it’s a little longer! Everyday is challenging because I have to keep my cool at work but when I come home it all comes boiling out. It isn’t fair to my husband to have me come home and take all my frustrations out on him. He doesn’t deserve that. Luckily with classes and help, my anger is becoming easier to manage. This is the advice my doctor gave me, love yourself first, then learn to love others. Even if they get on your last nerve. It helps to be nice to yourself sometimes. weird advice, I know. but it really does help me. Like I said, everyday is hard. But it gets easier with baby steps!
