While I am no stranger to these emotions, when they do present themselves in my life, they come as something of a surprise as they’re feelings we feel so infrequently, and when we do, so uncomfortably. The rage is especially challenging. It seems to be fuelled by a combination of hopelessness and self-anger for being unable to control what life is throwing at us. It bubbles under the surface and then we find something small and insignificant can trigger it off. When you find that a car taking too long to turn a corner or people taking too long…
