RE: Psychology Addict # 56 | Reflections on Anger.

in #psychology2 years ago

I am not an anger-prone person. In fact, it takes quite a significant amount of nonsense to get my blood boiling.

I guess we're even here Abbey.

I don't get angry easily. However, I believe that anger is a tool (more like a weapon) that can help someone to survive. But just like any other weapon, the outcome of it is dependent on the person that wields it. On the flip side; even though it might help someone to survive, it can also deny someone the chances of survival if it is used wrongly.

Anger itself may not be entirely bad but allowing it to control a major part of the person is what is bad.

Well, those are my thoughts though... I may be wrong.

PS: I like the scenario of Jesus that you referenced in the post. I've read those portions of the bible quite often.

Nice piece as usual Abbey. Much love from Nigeria

Nicely put Sammi. I like your thoughts very much. I have come across again and again this concept of how anger can yield positive outcomes. I confess I am a little puzzled by it and still am trying to come to terms with this idea in my own head. What you wrote here has helped to clarify things a little further. The weapon analogy is a very useful one :)

Thank you for your constant support, re-esteem and for always taking the time to share your wise rationale here with me Sammi I truly appreciate it and thank you from the bottom of my heart! I am also drawn to the teachings of Jesus Christ, I think he was a great philosopher who left a legacy of valuable insights about human conduct <3

Sending you bags of love from Portugal :* :D
