“Of all the emotions I have felt after injury, the one I’m having the most trouble dealing with is anger. I’m mad at myself, my coach, and at the medical professionals who I feel have failed me. I know some of this is justified. But I also feel trapped by it. What can I do to move forward?”
This week, co-host and mental skills coach Carrie Jackson answers a question from listener Adrian O. Carrie takes out her emotional metal detector to help injured athletes see what lies beneath their anger—and offers some surefire strategies for how to handle what they uncover.
