I think my anger is like a sleeping parasite! About a week and a half ago a situation occurred that really hurt my feelings and I still haven't gotten over it apparently. I thought I did. I expressed my hurt to the responsible party and they somewhat apologized, but mostly out of obligation.

I thought I had let it go, but then there it goes again, eating away at me inside. My anger becomes the focus of my thoughts and I can't get it to go away.

In my Bible study with Keelie, there was a quote about sometimes in prayer, the main purpose of prayer is just being heard. Maybe that's what I want from my communication, to feel like I've been heard. I don't know.

I think my sister's right, I had expectations of my life that I didn't realize. These let downs have built on to this anger, and maybe that's why I can't let go of it. I need to embrace my reality and learn to live out of where I am not where I want to be. Easier said than done.
