Excellent essay, Helen! I've run into this twice in the last week, once with my husband and once with one of those "lawyer" sorts ( =] ) just today. I almost called the lawyer to rant, but managed to stop and sent a measured email instead, which I also consider a win.

The biggest problem with holding on to the anger (especially in close relationships, like my husband) is that the injury spreads unchecked and dredges up every supposed injury and hurt since the day we met. Completely unfair. I'm trying really hard to focus on the specific and let go of everything else.


I also think that knowing you are helping people makes it easier to let go of anger. It makes you realize that many of those things are really just trivial, and happiness is the important thing...
