I have problems with ocd thoughts, too much ambition, and demanding too much of me. And sometimes not knowing what to do with my anger to be constructive.
I can get very angry. And sometimes itís good!
Only for me, the kids are just fine as they are.
My programming isnít that Iím not good enough, itís ďthis is fine for the start and now do 100 times as much or 1000 times as muchĒ
Iím in therapy and my she asked my about kids in the beginning. The kids are sweet and cool, sometimes annoying in a normal way, when they donít want to clean their rooms or similar boring stuff.
The therapy lady always says, Apia, enjoy the uncomplicated parts of your life.
Everyone has problems somewhere else.

And here I was thinking that I would get Apia's shower techniques, after the episode! Good thing I didn't bet myself!

How DO you constructively deal with your anger?
