I was just reading a friend's blog at another site and they were describing Buddhist teachings about 'living in the moment' and letting go of negative emotions. I think I have a lot to learn from that.
At this precise moment I am so angry. I've spent many hours working on something, which has effectively been undone by someone else in a stroke. Why are people so inconsiderate of other people's feelings? I don't want to deal with this now, so I'll save my frustration until tomorrow.
I do a lot of that - biting my tongue, not saying what I want to. Deliberately avoiding confrontation. It doesn't work - it just makes me more resentful and bitter.
There are moments when I feel myself on the edge of losing control and in a bad way. I don't like feeling that way. Sometimes though I feel as if I am constantly taken advantage of and my acquiescence (out of necessity to avoid confrontation) in many things is taken a signal for people to walk all over me. Its not fair, I do have feelings too.
