    I think those rocks have seen their share of angry tears. I hoped to leave my frustration behind there, but it came home with me.

    It isn’t as beautiful or as useful as your words, but reading what you suggested did give the knowledge that I’m afraid to forgive. If I let go of the resentment and self-righteous anger, I may give room for the hurt to come back and that scares the living daylight out of me. Anger is big enough to hide behind, but like you said, the hurt becomes something you shape your life around and I don’t want that shape. I want to be tall and strong and smart.

    So, angry or scared or whatever, I’ll do the exercise and report back. Thank you Dulcie.

    Well, I did the exercise and my brain immediately filled up with the kind of diversion most difficult to ignore. I think this would be a good thing to do daily, because even when I let go, the next day rage and a total lack of forgiveness is right back. So last night I tried something else. I intentionally sat down with my rage and gave it full rein. Bloody destruction and mayhem somehow turned into me putting myself in the shoes of the one I struggle to forgive. There was no thunderclap and no tears but somewhere in there, the tiniest seed of compassion started. So, yes, I think it helps, and I also think I need to do it more, as well as give myself permission to be angry.

    • absolutely. Rage is rage and it does no good to turn it into something else. It needs room to have its say. Writing is a great way. Also, pillows.

    Must add, sitting down and giving full rein means writing about it all, not doing it all. Important sidenote!

    Pillows, yes. Ahem. Well, if I don’t manage gentleness in this lifetime, I’ll put in a request to come back as a butterfly so everything I do will be soft.
