Its an incredibly loud emotion, yelling obscenities in all directions, seeking it’s daunted retribution. I doubt there is much stopping this train once it goes barreling down the track. Carnage, wreckage, and pain are sure to be the results seen most, in the aftermath of this brazen piss.
My own memory is scarred by the lashing impacts of an angry man, so why would I ever allow myself to express the same? An unleashing of anger upon the world, I have often judged as a failure on the part of my conscious evolution.
But this incomplete awareness is the genesis for repetitious patterns set strong in my childhood and simply reread ad infinitum. That is, until I see it, resolve it, and smash it.
The truth is I have much to feel anger about, both in my own life and in the world at large. Anger is a natural human emotion and can be celebrated just the same as any other of the more ‘desirable’ emotions.
But for some, who witnessed and experienced abuse at the hands of an angry caregiver, it can be challenging to let out our own anger for fear of inflicting the same harm upon others that was exacted upon us.
This is where healthy and explicit containers come into play. We all need supportive spaces where we can exercise our anger through safe and thorough expression, and we all need supportive people who can hold space for us and bear witness to our cathartic release.
The compression of any emotion to avoid its truth is a grave mistake for our own well-being and that of our entire cultural system.
Care must be given to anger so that it can be siphoned off the top of the deeper truths that it may be harboring in its shadow. Once we lighten this weighty burden, only then may we find Peace and Compassion as our new baseline.
The question becomes: Where in your life are you harboring unprocessed anger and where may you find a healthy and supportive container in which to express it?
