    My initial thoughts after reading the material for Day 2 are that fear is always at the bottom of these. I had already identified that my fear quickly turns into anger, hurt, sadness etc because I didn't know how to deal with it. When I tried to express my fears as a child I was simply not heard, I was given advice on how I should think and the resulting anger was beaten down usually verbally but also physically quite often. It was a very oppressive household that I was brought up in so I learned to suppress all my feelings.

    Now I have choices, I have free will and I am learning to exercise that.

    3 things that make me feel angry are;

    1) Being oppressed
    2) Being controlled
    3) Being manipulated

    3 things that make me feel sad are;

    1) Cruelty of any kind to people and animals
    2) Seeing others get hurt
    3) Seeing children cry when they are neglected

    Hi again, Willow. I share with you the things that make you angry or sad. I think most good people share them. Your solution to exercise your free will is a good way of dealing with those things.

    I think you will find great relief from your fears by journaling to discover their sources. Looks like them come from your childhood, as mine did. Once I discovered those repressed emotions from my parents divorcing when I was seven, I healed from severe back pain. I learned more about them in my journaling and it led me to forgive them. I realized they had their own pains from TMS stresses. If we put ourselves in others' shoes, we often understand them better.
