Getting Better!I grew up in a family where anger was taboo; I still tend to think of being cross, rather than angry. My bottled anger comes out as acute depression.
I have had adults winding me up for weeks just to try to get me angry; I am the most patient person I know!
I was sent away to single sex boarding schools, ultra macho, where any emotion was seen as a sign of weekness; and being remorselessly bullied, day and night, I couldn't afford to give them any ammunition.
But, forty years later, I am slowly learning that it is safe, ok and normal to express my emotions, and be me.
