Yes as I’m writing this, I’m seething with anger, disappointment and frustration. If truth be told, I’m sure I’m not the only one who experiences this. When I hang out on freelancing groups on Facebook, I read similar stories. It does bring out the worst in me.
I’m not one to handle their emotions well. In contrary to what most people think, I think there’s value in acknowledging what you feel and using your emotions to fuel you and your passion. Some say that there’s a need to “manage” one’s emotions. In reality, what they really meant was to suppress it. After going through depression for a while, I say, who gives a shit about what others think? If you can’t deal with it, don’t even bother trying to understand what I’m going through.
