Years ago, when I was married, I had several people point out that I was angry. I did not see it myself.

Now, certain events are bringing up a lot of anger, and I wonder if I am pushing it back. If it is the same anger, and I have just pushed it deeper and become better at camouflaging it.

The thing that has triggered the anger is my loneliness. Another feeling I am not expert at living with yet.

It is time to have compassion on myself. I am allowed to be angry. Yes, I am a counselor, so what? Does that mean I no longer need to stumble through learning my own emotions? No, I should be able to be angry. So, lets let it up and see what happens.
