What do you do with your anger?
There’s a very dilapidated old church, from the early 1900’s, in my historic neighborhood that I walk by every day. It’s interesting to observe the multiple ways people interact with it. Students from photography class use it as a backdrop, it was featured in a campaign to win a historic grant, and currently, it’s been painted by a local artist for the COVID-19 situation.
Anger tells your story
Your personal anger is like this old church. It’s deeply historical, impacts your soul, and tells your story. If you can focus deeply enough, you can see past your exterior, past your surface wear and tear, to your own core, appreciating the experiences that shaped your own life. This attention breathes new life, creating new opportunities for growth and creativity.
However, without the ability to focus deeper, your anger, like the old building, just sits there. When ignored, your anger becomes further debilitating, inviting you, as a person to slowly fade as time moves on.
