I have a stress issue that it's eating me up. Not only stress, but even anger is an issue for me. I think that anger leads to stress and stress leads to anger, at least for me.
Al of this anger/stress situation is eating up my energy, my focus, my motivation and my very own health. I feel a large, heavy rock on my chest every time I breathw.
Here are some things that stress/get me angry every day:
- My 14 y/o brother who always does the opposite of what is being told to him. He lives currently in a "community" arranged by the state (don't know how it's called in english) and gets home only on weekends.
- My mother, which always finds some way to take the blame off the shoulders of my brother when clearly he's wrong. Also, I feel like I take my fathers role sometimes, telling him what to do, since my dad isn't really home much because of work. The problem is that my brother doesn't give ** about what I say and my mother does nothing.
- I get mad when people in general doesn't listen to me. I don't want to brag or anything, but I know my stuff and in 90% of the cases when I say a thing is going to happen it WILL happen. My mom, brother, people around me don't get it and when things go to s**t then they behave like they couldn't do anything to prevent it. Well, guess what? I already told them that THAT could've happen.
My question is: do you know a meditation technique, some Buddha stuff or ANYTHING that could help me not to be so stressed/angry about this things?
I am a very rational person and I am aware when I get angry or when I am stressed. The thing is I can't control how I feel, I can't stop being stressed or angry at my will, there isn't really a switch.
Is there some mantra, something that can help me? How can I get off this massive rock that I have on my chest?
