LikeLike Reply All throughout my life I used anger to drive myself through difficulties. I’m older now and since I’ve realized that anger isn’t the healthiest choice I’ve turned to prayer and exercise, especially since my surprise recent diabetes diagnosis. That really scared me since I have/had no risk factors (no family history, not overweight, and so on). LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Anger throws us into the fight or flight mode and too much in it affects our internal organs. I’m glad you managed to switch from that to something calming.

I found it more beneficial than writing a journal – I’ve always been a bit of an attention seeker!
