“I’m Doing My Best to Make the Best of It”
Those who are watching you might feel better if they understood that you have no intentions of remaining in your state of anger. If they knew that your greater plan is to move through you anger, and then through frustration through overwhelment to optimism to belief and onward to your knowing that all is well, they might be more patient with where you are right now.
There are many people who just naturally move from the powerless feeling of depression or fear into anger as a sort of self surviving mechanism, but when they are met with so much disapproval from family members, friends, and counsellors with respect to the inappropriateness of their anger, they return to the feeling of powerlessness, only to repeat the cycle again and again: from depression to anger, to depression to anger, to depression and anger…..
The key to regaining your wonderful feeling of personal empowerment and control is to decide, right now, no matter how good or bad you are feeling, that you are going to do your best of it. Reach for the best feeling thought that you have access to right now, and as you do that again and again, in a short period of time you will find yourself in a very good-feeling place. That is just the way it works.
