When I was upset, was treated badly, or did something wrong, I used to deal with it in a creative way - I wrote little or sometimes long sketches about what seemed to be the problem.
Now I also write poetry, letters, small stories, articles and other things I can think of. But here is an example of a sketch I wrote. But note that everybodys humor might differ a bit, so this is not for everybodys amusement:
A description first. There are the persons Sh, Sa, A, D and Fl - these are just the beginning letters of their names. But the names are not that important, you can imagine some. Sh and Sa are a married couple, as couples do as a stereotype, fightig, Fl is their grown-up daughter. D is silly but very caring and A often varies.
Sh: I like how you move like chewing gum when you dance.
Sa: I like how you insult me but put it like a compliment.
Sh: I like how you turn everthing I say around, so it seems like I am the bad one.
Sa: I like how you hide in your compliments that I’m the bad one.
D: That’s not what the session is about.
Sa: You said we should tell each other more positive things.
Sh: …And say what we like about each other.
D: Something you actually like! Not use the opportunity to insult each other again!
Sa: I like how he looks like a comic figure with this haircut.
Sh: I like how your glasses make you at least look smart.
A: *comes in sometime while they are fighting* What’re you doing? Group therapy?
D: So far only Sh and Sa were talking … Lotsa problems.
Sa: I like how you act as if you would know anything about therapy.
D: Let’s say something nice about somebody else, shall we?
A: I don’t like how you make so much fuzz about each other and every littlest thingy.
D: You have to say something you like.
A: I like potato gratin and rainy walks.
D: We know, but say something you like about a person.
A: I like honest people.
D: A person in this room.
A: Oh … well, you are all in some way very okay.
D: You have to start with „I like“.
A: I don’t want to play this game I think.
D: What’s your problem?
A: I don’t have any right now.
Fl: I like how you deal with things humorous.
A: I like that you think so.
D: Everybody has problems.
A: Yes, but they aren’t bigger as we make them.
Fl: I like how you say „Oh, there’s a problem … oh, well, let’s draw a big flower and dance.“
A: No, I say „Oh, there’s a problem, let’s make it a flower.“
