Anger is one of the stages of grief after experiencing a loss. And a lot of times while we are able to emote other emotions as women, anger is not something that comes naturally to us and it's very important to allow those emotions to go through to heal. So some of the things you can do is kind of find a creative safe space for you in your own home so that you can let some of those angry feelings out because every one of us have them. Surround yourself with pillows in the room if you really need to, have a friend come over and support you, then punch and scream into those pillows and say all the things you weren't able to emote to anyone in public, while you were are work, or some of the feeling you weren't able to share with you friend or your partner. Other ways to do it is really be able to talk it out with a therapist, for example. Or really, just journal out those feelings and give that anger a voice. Imagine, if anger was a person sitting across from you, what are some of the things you might say to anger because you're so angry? Whatever resonates with you, I would just say do it, let those feelings of anger out so that you don't have to hang onto it anymore.
