When I found out that one of my cancers had become metastatic I found myself being very angry. I was intolerant of others, generally a miserable person. After basking in my unhappiness I decided that I didn't want to live the rest of my life with these horrible feelings. So, I went to bed, along with my anger, and decided that when I woke up the next morning I will no longer be angry or mad. I realized that I was unwilling to live any more of what was left of my life with these terrible negative feelings.
By some miracle and the force of my mind, I was successful. I had let go of my bad feelings. I am not saying that I don't have moments when I feel depressed and angry, but those feelings no longer rule who I am and who I interact with the world.
Has anybody had a similar experience, or how have you dealt with your negative feelings?
