Anger or Determination

I’m trying to understand how I can abandon the anger and aversion while remaining true to my determination to let go of a situation that seems to be incredibly unhealthy. I feel maligned, underappreciated and unfairly criticized but, really, who doesn’t?

In the heat of the moment it may be too much to ask to immediately come back to a place of calm (especially when the other party refuses to give you space) but as soon as I’m free of the immediate harm I’ve found I’m able to do so. Still, it’s hard to know anything for certain.


  1. It certainly is hard! You’re doing the good work though, and every bit of effort counts. May you be steadfast on your path, may you receive all the guidance and encouragement you need to stay on it, may friends be there at every turn, welcoming you with open hearts.
