Being defiant and avoiding others was one of the ways I, Bobbi Brantley, had let my anger out in the past. Currently, when I am mad, I say I am mad. I no longer silence my anger, and I no longer feel shame for being angry. Anger is also a human emotion. It is just as healthy to express frustration as it is joy. Not expressing feelings and frustrations was what created explosions in me, along with depression, which was unhealthy for me.
If you are up for sharing, I would love to hear how some of you experienced unexpressed anger yourselves.
