Confronting Anger

Updated: Jan 21, 2019

A question I have held within myself and one I come across often. “How can I not be angry?”, I just want to be peaceful.

Anger as we know it is bad, it is wrong and should be controlled.

As one of the most problematic emotions it has quite a stigma and anyone who is expressing anger 'needs help'. With the increasing occurrence of such phenomena as road rage, high school shootings, ugly divorce endings, and abuse in relationships—in short, with the prevalence of violence today—the attention given to acting-out, out-of-control anger has grown and becomes even more shunned. The number one threat to peace of mind. Flipside, there is more wisdom and meaning in this specific emotion than before.
