It’s Okay To Be Angry.

It is okay to be angry about the abuse you endured, the lies you were told, the hurt you were given. Take time to be angry, do not keep it in. You can not start to heal if you do not let yourself be angry. Keeping it inside will only make it worse, it needs to escape your soul. If you do not let yourself be angry, it will grow into depression, self hatred, and most likely redirected anger. After being in an abusive relationship you overthink everything.

  • I should have done this differently
  • I should of said this instead
  • I should of stood up for myself
  • Why did I not leave sooner how was I so stupid
    I should of seen all the signs in the beginning
  • Thinking back about what you should or shouldn’t have done isn’t going to help your growth. You even might start seeing yourself becoming angry but over little stuff and at the wrong people, because you are angry at yourself. You shouldn’t be angry at yourself because nothing was your fault. So instead of keeping the anger in or redirecting it to someone who doesn’t deserve it, take time to let your anger out.
    • Set times where you need to just let your anger out
      Think about what your anger is directed too and let it out
      Let it out in your own personal setting in your room, in your car away from others, or drive to a secluded area. Wherever you can feel comfortable & not hurt others
      Scream as loud as you want, pretend your telling the person your thinking of whatever comes to mind, punch your pillow, whatever you have to do.
  • When you let your anger out in your own way, private, and personal way, you don’t have to actually hurt anyone else. You can let the anger release out of your body day by day. You can start feeling more like a weight has been lifted off of you. It’s okay to be angry and let it out, but just make sure your doing it more in a positive way so you can heal without wounding others who never deserved it.
