Subject: Thank you!
Dear Dr. Irene: Your web pages have
helped me to see that my anger was normal and natural, and that my
ex-husband used that against me in our relationship. I also have
learned, through your web-page and many friends and books, that people
such as my ex-husband use our anger as tools. Funny how he
disappeared after I confronted him with the words " you are
verbally abusive, and we need to go to marriage counseling to continue
our marriage" all of a sudden made him #1) Get ready to leave and
make plans and #2) Spew forth a verbal vomit of hurtful things, such as
"In your next relationship, I want you to know this", to which
I responded "My next relationship is of no concern to you".
Like all of our stories, this one is a long one. I just want to
thank you for validating what I was feeling, especially helping me to
see that anger is healthy, unless you let it
get out of control (and I did, I'm guilty of that, of course he used
that as a trump card against me).
I would like to contribute and help
others who have this problem, it is rampant in our society. Thanks
