GREAT QUOTE! Thanks for sharing. Blessings, Lydia
If you never get angry, you’re not really engaging; but you have to be absolutely clear of the source of the anger before you take action. I really must take my own advice on that. 🙂
what if I enjoy being angry?
Anger is often a powerful motivator, to fight injustice, to protect what is threatened, to overcome.
Depends on the context.
Say if 20000 underage girls where being sexually abused in the UK right now by gangs of men (which is what we believe is going on) – then I might get angry, and it would motivate me to raise awareness via the blog. (which reminds me, I need to post something I watched earlier about this, so thanks)
So, anger can be used positivly if channeled correctly. It can used to enforce boundaries, when people are abusive, or step over our boundaries, also. There are many ways to positvily channel anger.
If channeled incorrectly/negatively one can do things one may later regret. Can lead to violence, and harm to others (and oneself). Can lead to people losing their lives or livlihoods. Or even a relationship that cannot be repaired via verbal interaction.
And, so, nothing wrong with anger, it’s a natural human emotion that everyone experiences – it’s a pain response, physical or emotional. It’s how one uses/channels one’s emotions that counts, which I think is the point of what the author was trying to say.
Also, a good set of ethics and morals, help guide one when one is angry. And, some good friends to talk to doesn’t hurt either 🙂
And, lastly, if I’m angry, introspection I’ve found helps, to see what the cause is in myself.
Final point is that others are more able to manipulate one if one is angry – so I’d watch out for that one … some have mastered this skill.
