I used to have a terrible temper. It was something I never realized was a problem. It was all around me in the area where I grew up. When people got angry they would go from zero to 11 in a matter of seconds. When my girlfriend called the police on me I realized I needed to change. I realized the impact that my anger and aggressiveness was having on those around me. As soon as I left the police station I went on the Internet to find resources and support. Since that night I have been practicing skills to deal with my emotions in a more positive way. It’s been a long journey. My Record Suspension is a confirmation for me that I will never go back to being the person I was that night.
