Default Hi, I have complex trauma

I talked to my therapist last week, and while it's not even in the DSM V (it should be), it seems to fit me. At least, the things I went through, and its effects. It was empowering to admit in her office. But now I feel a lot of anger. I feel anger in my current life too, with the way people have been treating me. I'm not sure how to make that stop.

Heart Re: Hi, I have complex trauma

May I suggest simply sitting with that anger, breathing into it, feeling its power, perhaps even smiling to it, & allowing it to arise-&-fade as it will? You might even place a hand over your heart as a sign of compassion & lovingkindness for what you are experiencing. You could, in addition, realize that the anger you are feeling has been felt in one way or another by every human being who is alive today, who has ever lived, or likely will ever live. It is a part of our common heritage as human beings.

Welcome to the community!
When I felt great anger, I threw socks on the wall and I wrote very angry letters which I never sent but I tore them to tiny pieces and it felt AMAZING!

Oh my gosh I love these ideas. Thanks seeker! The socks and yes, writing letters and NOT sending them. Sure beats sending them and then feeling regret.

Default Re: Hi, I have complex trauma

I feel guilty because I acted out recently. I said mean things on PC because I was hurt by someone's actions and words. I hope no one here thinks I'm a jerk. I am learning from my mistakes and doing the best I can. I also vented on facebook recently. Being openly reactive isn't something that happens often anymore, but it does happen. I'm definitely not perfect. I was in a very vulnerable place. DBT helps though. I am learning. I am doing my best, and then when I know better I do better.

I haven't seen the post you're taking about. However I generally like and appreciate your posts here. Everyone loses their temper sometimes. Me too. It's natural. What matters is that we learn from it and you seem to be doing that :-)
