Hi Rose! It’s so good to seek advice on these things; I’m grateful we have a little community here where we can come together and help each other.
Just 20 minutes ago I realized while talking to a friend that I became very angry when he brought up a certain topic because of one past experience that I had related to it. So while talking I thought about why I was angry. Eventually I told him I was angry and told him it was because of the topic, and he helped me to see why, and I maybe even healed a little because of that. I say all of that for this: talking also helps. When we have these emotions and Leo them to ourselves, although prayer can help, I think speaking aloud to another person what we are feeling certainly helps very much. Verbalizing it exposes the devils attack it works immediately I have found. I did this with other emotions in the past, just not anger so that was a new one. Just thought I would add verbalizing the emotion (even here, like you have done) to the list everyone has already made. God bless!
