    Denise,
    Your video is very helpful. The underlying issues of anger for me are loss of respect from others and being stripped of my dignity. I am hurt that someone that says he is in love with me can treat me with complete disrespect. Instead of walking away (giving away control) I want to try to take control to get the situation changed. Of course that approach is futile.
    When I drill down to the real issue I realize that it is my pride that is hurt, more so than my heart.
    So giving up pride by taking on humility and giving all control to God, I can live through those moments of anger until they pass. I am working on being able to handle the anger through recognition of that, but more often I fall into the old patterns.

    Anne, thanks for sharing! It is so hard to give up control but you are on the right path by working on what you can control and that is your own actions. Remember that it is a day by day, minute by minute process but it does get easier over time. Continue to give it up to God and I am confident that you will find peace more each day!
