Write it down

clasphands2

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.
