There are no boundaries in my fantasies. If I did not have a place to escape to, I would surely go insane.
Holding things in damages you. Letting anger out is good. It’s a good thing because once it’s out, like the puss in a boil, you heal. It’s over, done and dusted.
How do you let anger go?
I can get quite snappy with people. I can’t suffer idiots and frack me, there are enough of them around! I deal with people everyday and over the years have learnt how to curb my “bitchy streak”.
So here’s the thing to do when you get to your breaking point. Whilst you’re smiling with a twinkle in your eye, nodding your head in agreement, sympathy or other appropriate emotional response for the situation, and responding in a polite, courteous, soothing voice, you’re imagining them in a small rubber dingy with a little hole in it being circled by sharks.
A friend of mine blows people up. Seriously, when she’s pissed off she imagines them exploding in front of her.
I know the whole deal about positive, loving thoughts, bla bla bla, but hell, I’m not the Dalai Lama. I can’t do that shit 24/7. Anyway, once I’ve carved someone up in my imagination I’m over it. I don’t stay angry or annoyed and it’s forgotten in a few minutes.
If you are holding onto something that makes you feel angry or annoyed or hurt, blow that shit up, you don’t need it.
