I am exploring how women deal with anger based on being ‘wronged’. I am curious as to how unprocessed anger affects the brain and how this can go on to affect self-esteem and confidence, and how this then influences: judgement and decision making; ability to say ‘no’; quality of emotional and physical health.

Anna’s Story:

When my husband had an affair (aged 31) I embodied the word devastated. Thought the grief would kill me. I had weird reactions, such as wanting to report him to the police because it felt like a crime had happened; our marriage – a life contract – was broken and over, in just 2 years. We nearly reconciled but I was too angry to forgive him, plus he wanted a life with her really. I was angry that I wasn’t enough, angry he had changed in secret, angry he had found someone much more attractive.
For months I was weird, but I felt on the verge of victim-hood redefining the true me and I didn’t want to become that type of person. So I coached myself into positivity and a sort of live-and-let-live, and I moved on. Moved 200 miles away so I could block him out. I became happier, calmer, kinder, me again. I have rarely felt angry ever again. It’s like it used up my life quota of anger.
