Back in January 2008 I got angry, I don't mean just angry, angry. I got really pissed!
Now when it hits the fan (you should be able to figure out what the 'it' is) I am the kind of person that thinks out what I need to do and then I face it head on. One thing that I don't do when my little world starts to crumble is panic or have little poor me parties.
I can empathize (connect with, understand) with others but I find it hard to sympathize (feel sorry for, cry with, get all soppy) with others, I feel that it makes people weak.
When I exploded a year ago and I said aloud to myself "I am not going to die young and be put in a dumper coffin and buried in a grave the same size as a swimming pool!"
After that I fueled myself with that anger and rage to channel all my efforts and focus to accomplish something great.
Using your anger to piss and moan or feel sorry for yourself will keep you where you are and you will not accomplish anything.
Grab your anger by the throat and suck it down inside of yourself and then get into action mode and do something!
Your anger has power if it is converted into planned and purposeful action.
