“I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you, because I’ve learned — I am not a child — and I have learned that when I have spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself. So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry, and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”

1. Breathe through it, for now

2. Start to unpick your thoughts and feelings

3. Observe your body and address your immediate needs

4. Engage in some active reflection

5. Find a mode of healthy expression

In a bigger sense…

Research the facts

Engage in constructive discussion

Get active for your cause

Give it time
