memphis. very very warm (31C). a little rough around the edges (the city and us). a dumpy rental apt which we tried to back out of and have now made coffee and settled in.
from my inbox:
email from Mari: “After listening to this audio [lesson 1] I realize that I am so angry all the time. Angry that I had to listen to this audio. So pissed that I can’t drink, pissed when I do drink, especially the next day. I remain in a state of constant anger, gives me a reason to get up in the morning and go about all my tasks, but always pissed about it all, having to live, having to do things i don’t want to do. This rage keeps me from feeling, keeps me from doing anything about my unhappy life.
When you said to close my eyes and listen, telling me I am not broken, that made me feel so much better, made me stop being so angry, made me think maybe she’s right, maybe there is hope for me.
I feel so relieved right now, like the pressure is off me, maybe i don’t have to be in a rage all the time. Maybe………..”
Question: Do you have anger or is it (maybe) fear? how closely linked are anger and fear, do you think?
