I am new on here and a friend from church told me this might be a good place to get good, honest, friendly advice. I have been having a lot of problems letting go of anger and frustrations over some things that have been going on in my family for awhile now. Does anybody have any advice or thoughts?
If you can help, thanks!
learn to forgive
that word does not mean condoning bad behavior, enabling an abusive situation, making excuses, being co-dependent, or being a doormat
it means refusing to give control over your own emotions and reactions to another person.
you cannot change the family member, and the longer the situation has existed, the less likely it is to change.
you can change only yourself. this takes prayer, and most of all a spirituality that turns it all over to Christ and joins him on the Cross.
