Wouldn’t it be nice if other people held up their part of the bargain? Or at least acted right? But sometimes they don’t right? And when they don’t, it’s only human to get mad at them. That’s all there is to it. Whether we let them know we are mad or not.

When you’re living with a chronic condition, you may find that your patience can wear a little thin. And that the behavior of other people – especially people you care about – just doesn’t match up to what you expect, and know they are capable of. After all, you’re dealing with a lot. Don’t they get that? And can’t they step up to the plate and be there for you? At least behave themselves?

How about considering this? What’s it doing to you to walk around with all that negativity? It doesn’t do much for your own emotional and physical health, for one thing. And angry feelings can get can leave you feeling alone at a time when you need support.

“Okay, I got it,” you may be thinking. But people can still make me really mad. What am I supposed to do about that?

Here’s a link to an article I posted about getting angry at other people:

Now, I’m interested in your experiences. Do you ever get mad at somebody? Often? And what it is that usually makes you mad.

And here’s a question: Does it help to get mad? And if not, what do you do to stop yourself when you feel yourself getting mad at somebody?

Looking forward to hearing from you!
