     I have felt my container expand when I let go of the anger I felt toward my parents for having controlled my life by putting restrictions on my 'freedoms' and by punishing me for my mistakes in my childhood and adolescent years. Yes, my anger towards my parents actions towards me evaporated the minute I learnt that the pain and suffering that a punishment entails is in fact an opportunity to become wiser, by learning and growing from mine and other's experiences. The process of lettting go is still happening, day by day, month by month and I am so much better off for it and so is my parents( or at least they will be)!
