This is how I feel whenever I have to face anger.
It’s almost always in the form of confronting other people. Going up to someone and knowing they won’t be happy with what I’m about to say. Sometimes it’s a political view, an opinion I have that I know the person I’m approaching won’t like.
Sometimes it’s something dumb like a neighbor not liking the way I take out the garbage. Or a store employee having a bad day and I need to pester (ask) them for something.
There are a million opportunities for me to just be myself and have people be unhappy with what I say or do, no matter how reasonable I try to be.
It’s my problem. I can’t accept anger because I’m too afraid of it. I don’t want to be but at this point I don’t have any control over it. The anxiety comes up regardless of what I want. Gotta love how important the ages of 0-5 are 🙂
It’s my job to fix it too. More on that in later posts.
