It’s not healthy to keep anger inside for too long.
If you’re too upset to speak calmly, you can write a note and put it where the other person will see it.
Here are three sentences that may help.
First: “My dear, I am suffering, I am angry, and I want you to know it.”
The second is: “I am doing my best.” This means you are practicing mindful breathing and walking, and you are refraining from doing or saying anything out of anger.
The third is: “Please help me.”
Memorize these sentences or write them on a small piece of paper, the size of a credit card, and put it in your wallet.
Then when you’re angry, you can take it out, and you will know exactly what to do.
