This caller has a lot of anger around her. Both she and her husband get very angry towards one another, to the point that she’s thinking of leaving him because he makes her feel uncomfortable and afraid. Her anger didn’t start with her husband; she’s angry with her mom because of what happened in her childhood, but she hasn’t found a way to release it in a way that feels good to her.
Is being angry ever healthy? Should we suppress our anger (like we’ve always been told to do), or can we find a way to release it in a way that’s beneficial to us?
This call is for you if you get angry but you never get any relief from it, or you’re surrounded by angry people who make you feel uncomfortable and afraid.
