Scream, shout, and let it all out. It’s tough to keep in feelings that only seem to eat your insides away. It’s a terrible feeling, and you’d do anything to get rid of it. Throw those nasty feelings into the flames and watch it wither away into ashes. What’s stopping you? Oh wait, you were told to “control yourself”, “take a deep breath”, “take a step back”. Still, you do exactly what they tell you to do but your clenched fists maintain its position and heat in great measures is taken in and out of your nostrils. The last thing you want to do is to keep yourself composed. Everything around you takes on the disguise of punching bags and your initial reaction is to give blows here and there. They just don’t understand what I’m going through. It’s easier said than done. They don’t realize how much easier it is. If it’s unbearable, don’t bottle it up inside. Do what you can to bring yourself to normal (what’s normal?) state. Let it all out at the most you can afford given where you’re at.
If you’re at school- let your thoughts take on the form of words. Go to the restroom and splash water on your face and let the water drip down your face for a couple or so seconds before wiping your face down. Hold your breath; it’ll force you to take deep breathes in and out.
If you’re at home- let your imagination run wild. However, do so with the safety of you, your house, and others. Take your pillow and start hitting your bed with it as hard as you can repeatedly. Go to your garage and scream til your lungs run out of air. Take a walk. You’ll thank mother nature later for its calming effects.
Wherever you are, it’s possible to let your anger run wild and free. Take advantage of what’s around you. You’ll be surprised what you can do with the resources around you. Next time those horrible feelings come out, give them a piece of your mind. Whatever battle you may be battling, just know that you’re not alone 🙂
Good kid, mad city
