Honey lately, I’ve been angry.

Lately,  I have been going up and down with the emotions of anger. Literal anger, not frustration or irritation, which sometimes parades around like anger for me. This feeling has been very strong–I want to say radiant. Unable to be mistaken and is alive in every part of my body. It is loud and will stay until it gets confronted face to face. It has been interesting for me to try to conceptualize myself as someone who could even feel anger. What does that mean? What does that look like?

The anger is showing me a lot. I’m learning that to let it, I have to remain available. This post is a reminder to myself and to whoever wants it to be.

When you feel angry Remember to:

  1. Take a Step Back: Feel the feeling as it comes, ask yourself why am I feeling this (instead of reacting or projecting)
  2.  Breathe (deeply) : Use your breath to come back to the center, to quiet your mind so you can listen to yourself
  3. Create: do something that you like to help move the energy, write, talk to yourself, sing, dance. something


It’s funny how the things in life come together. I learned to practice these three things in very separate ways yet they all connect now to help me grow in a new way. How could I not be grateful? Thanks for being here.

with love,

  1. Hello Presentalle, I followed your link on First Friday. Nice to meet you!

    I love this topic. A lot of people suffer anger issues and I imagine these thoughts will be very helpful. It is a raw and honest and relatable. Your first paragraph is very beautifully written, showing you have huge potential as a writer.

    There are a couple of errors in syntax and lexemes. Get back to me if you would like to know what these are–some people love to hear about these to polish up, but other people just like to write and enjoy, whichever is fine 🙂

    A lovely piece, nice job!


    1. Thank you for your feedback! I really love writing and I go back and forth between letting words pour out and trying to stay on top of the such things like you mentioned. I’d love to get more feedback. I’m quite new so I’m not sure if there is a better way to message?
