Mirror, Mirror on the Wall Monday

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…sometimes I just don’t know what to do with my anger. 

I do my best to stay calm, cool, and collected under any situation.   I can usually step back from my own emotions and take a look at what else is there besides my ego.  I really do try to see the other side of a conflict, offer up solutions, and attempt to reach a mutually-satisfying agreement. I pretty much try to avoid any sort of unpleasantness with people and strive to be kind no matter the circumstances.  But sometimes…I just want to SCREAM!  

In a previous romantic relationship, I engaged in enough bad behavior that I decided life is too damn short to be angry, disappointed and resentful.   It still is hard sometimes to surrender and allow my not-so-nice feelings and emotions to just be present within me.  Sometimes having a cold splash in the ocean is exactly what I need to calm me down, cool me off, and collect my wits about me again.  

What is the best way you’ve found to make peace with your anger?
