I have a fear of anger, both my own and other people’s (especially other people’s).
It’s my main psychological issue and I hate it. It’s embarrassing to have, especially for a tall male.
But, I do have to deal with it and am creating this blog as one of the many ways I’m trying to work on it.
For a long time I struggled with it, never really knowing exactly what was going on. In the back of my mind I knew something was causing my “stress” and yet that was about the extent of my awareness. I certainly didn’t know it was the root cause of most of the hardship in my life. It was only when I received proper therapy that I became aware of the issue, was able to name and feel it at the same time, and could finally do something about it.
Doing something about it is a life long process, but I should see good results within 5 years or so with continual awareness work.
I do a little each day. As of this writing I’ve done 2 1/2 years and although I’m not where I want to be, I’m certainly far from who I used to be.
I hope to help anyone else who has a FOA with my blog posts. By posting my own thoughts and experiences I hope to help increase awareness in others. Awareness and clarity are key. If you’re reading this then I welcome you here and hope you get something useful out of the site, and I hope you stick around for the ride.
I want to point out too that I am not an expert or authority on the matter and that what I write about should not be taken as advice. In the posts I’m talking to you the reader but mostly talking to myself, hoping that whoever reads them will also benefit.
Lastly, I’d like to invite you to share anything you have to say on your FOA by sending in your own post for others to read. The more the merrier, the more we all benefit.
