Your Anger is a Gift

I've been working very hard on managing my anger.

It's hard to be positive and let stuff go.  I don't know how to do it very well.

I tend to brood and dwell.

I don't care for it any more.  It's exhausting.

I've been very, very aggravated at work lately, not with the people, because I like my co-workers, but with some other issues that exacerbate my dismay at not being able to find a job and feeling like my career has always been and will always be a source of anxiety and despair.

I try and focus on things in a more positive light:
  • This is the universe trying to show me that I need to stop trying to please people in situations I don't care about
  • This is the universe trying to tell me to do what I really, really want to do with my life
  • This is the universe doing something that I can't understand right now, but that will ultimately be to my benefit
Or it may just be a bunch of shit.  I don't know.

But I am trying to be calm and accepting and let things go and happen as they must.

I am the motherfucking Ghandi of acceptance.


Speaking of dealing with angst and anger, my Thanksgiving post is up at Secret Society of List Addicts.  Go on.  It'll do you good.


  1. I'm working on this one, too. Holiday shopping at my favorite place (not) the mall always threatens to do me in.

  2. breathe and screw the motherfuckers.

  3. can i quote you on being the motherfucking gandhi of acceptance? that's an amazing line.

    i feel you on the anger. i've had to really let some rage loose over the last few weeks to stave off serious breakdown issues. hope you can vent some way that won't land you in either jail or the hospital...

  4. We definitely need more Ghandis. Also more Pierce Brosnans. But that's just my opinion.

  5. So if I slap you, you'll just turn and let me slap the other cheek? Is that Gandhi?

  6. Yay!

    Welcome to the other side of life, you'll love it here with me, just being fat, dumb, and happy.

    Really, it's more fun being a happy idiot.

    No lie.

  7. Sometimes I feel this way about the Universe... and other times I feel like the Universe is just fucking with me.

    Thanks, Universe. You arse.

  8. Well, you'll know then, if you read Buggin's blog, that is motherfucking booze day, so drink up MF Ghandi. Then just wait for the MF ideas to start rollin' in.

  9. it's simple - working sucks. those women-lib bitches screwed us out of the best thing ever... staying home and watching tv all day while the kids are playing outside.


Every time you comment, I get a lady boner.
