Until we fully release our emotions, they continue to affect our present mindset.
- Do anger work. Allow yourself to be fully disappointed, sad or depressed. Talk about it.
- Write a letter. Purging emotions out on paper give them a place to live outside of yourself.
- Talk to the person (if possible). This is only helpful if it is safe for you to speak with the person. It is usually not effective when you are angry or until you have processed your emotions significantly on your own.
