I recently ordered something from a company.
I got what I ordered, all was well.
Until I checked my credit card statements this morning and noticed 2 unauthorized payments from that same company.
By the looks of it, they added me to some subscription based something.
Just to be clear: I am absolutely 100% certain I did NOT sign up for whatever it is.
I looked at those payments and was pissed off!
I’m not worried about the money – I trust I’ll get it back somehow.
And if I don’t, ah well, that money will come back to me some other way.
No, I’m angry about the complete dishonesty of this company.
As I wrote in the final paragraph of my email:
“I am pissed off about your super sleazy, unethical and dishonest sales methods (also known as stealing) and expect a quick and full refund and to NEVER hear from you again afterwards.”
I wondered for a moment if I’d leave that sentence in or take it out.
I mean, what good does it do to leave it in?
But then I thought, well, wait a minute… what good does it do to take it out?
I have EVERY right to be angry, so why shouldn’t I share it with the people I’m angry at?
The only reason they’re on the receiving end of my irritation is that they behaved like dishonest sleaze balls.
I left it in.
And it feels good.
It’s healthy to express your anger.
There’s absolutely NOTHING wrong with it.
Most women however keep a lid on their rage.
It’s somehow not done for women to be angry, let alone express it.
To that I say: let it rip, baby!
Sure, there are boundaries and lines and laws and all that, but there’s nothing wrong with saying that you’re angry or someone pissed you off!
Keeping your anger in is not good for you. Sooner or later you either implode or explode.
That energy has to go somewhere!
Yes, you can beat the crap out of a pillow, and that can work wonders.
But sometimes, there’s just nothing better than tell someone you’re angry, and why that is.
Just like I did in my email.
What are you angry about?
And what are you doing with it?
See if you can express and share it somehow, or use it as fuel to take actions and make decisions that move you forward.
That way, it becomes a force for good in your life, instead of destructive, festering energy that eats away at you.
Allowing yourself to be angry is one of the topics in my book ’The Art of Divine Selfishness – transform your life, your business & the world by putting YOU first.’
