“I thought I was a gazelle.
But the more I leaped and hurdled
Through my life,
The more I realized
How poorly I was doing
At keeping up with the sixty mile per hour
Pack of sprinting antelope all around me.
So, I had to leave the pack.
I had to morph back into myself.”
Affirm: I cannot allow anger to grow roots in my reactions.
At the source of all our self rejecting
behaviors, we are mad about something.
Think about the worst thing you’ve ever done to
yourself, said to yourself, or believed about yourself
while you were angry… What was it?
I’ll answer for myself…
I’ve said too many curse words and phrases
to myself during sessions with
rage…sometimes literal four-letter words that
whipped themselves up from a place that
wasn’t from my heart.
I’ve Acted out in anger things that have
permitted me to be a self-harm and suicide
Take anger and all the friends it shows up with very
seriously. Much is required in the action of this
affirmation, because in the deed of rage and anger,
we hold hostage negative thoughts, emotionally sick
behaviors, and lies we believe about ourselves.
In the action of this affirmation, write down where
anger is leading your life. Read it and process it.
Look at where it is governing so that you no longer
passively allow it to rule its territory with your
thrown off behavior and depression. While you
build on this affirmation, crying is good. It will bring
you into balance
We can’t completely avoid the effects of anger in
our human responses as we know that our lives
aren’t always so simple. What you want to do is
prevent anger from sprinkling itself over already
delicate areas where we are struggling, grieving, or
so where can we start?
1. Allow yourself to touch what your life
experiences make you feel. For example,
if someone hurts you; it’s okay to feel the
hurt, disappointment, and anger. It’s okay
to feel that. It’s not okay to act in the
feeling indefinitely or allow the anger to
cause us to hurt someone else or
2. Talk about your pain to somebody you
trust… A mentor, a therapist. Talk about
your pain until it’s all coughed up from
the pit of your stomach and allowing you
to breathe easier.
3. Live. Plan and perform in lieu of anger’s
forecast. God has allowed you to live up
to this beautiful point in your life with a
sound mind for a reason. If your anger
has held a significant place in your life; it’s time for you to live now.
