I believe that the most important lesson that I learned the hard way is that it is not a bad thing to get angry or upset with a person, or a family member or even a close friend. During my life time I have also been afraid to tell people how I feel or have felt when I get upset with them. A recent situation that I endured had me sit down and really have to think about what I was truly feeling. I had gotten upset as a dear friend had told me she was running a quick errand and would be right back. After a hour or so I was texting her to see what was going on as I was watching the children. As I could not get ahold of her I was getting worried as I often do sometimes, I was worried that something may have happened. Then when I finally was able to find out what was going on when she returned about four hours later I hadn’t been able to explain to her when she got home that I was very upset and angry. All I could do was go to try and put myself to sleep and cry, as I didn’t know what else to do as I couldn’t explain my feelings. It had finally took a couple of days and the help of my therapist to truly explain to her that I was upset. I lesson that I had learned is that when I was around my family I couldn’t express my feelings, so in turn I was not able to express them to her as for I thought she would be upset with me for being emotional and upset with the situation. Even though this is one of many situations that I have dealt with I have finally started to understand that I can be angry, or get upset and I can express my feelings to anyone without having to worry about someone being upset for how I feel.
