I don't know if other people can relate, but sometimes, I just really really hate talking about my feelings, especially when I get upset. Yeah, I know I need to get it out and everything, not bottle it up. At the same time, I knew from past experience that James going to alleviate my anger, make me feel better with some smart piece of wisdom he picked up in one of his spiritual “daily reflection” books, or maybe something his therapist told him once, or whatever. And I didn't want to let go of my anger. I wanted to hold on to it, at least for a little while longer. Because anger makes me feel a little more empowered, a little more in control. And right now, I feel anything but.
