Day Fourty-One..#Anger

Anger is a terrible thing.

In the Bible it says “Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters. You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.(James 1:19-20 – New Living Translation)

Today I got angry. I didn’t mean to..but it was like bubbling inside and it just poured out of my mouth and over.

And what it was about wasn’t anything completely major..but I guess it was.

I think this had been building up for a while..but the way I dealt with the situation wasn’t like me at all. What I did was scream and shout and walk away..which is something that I would have done about 6 years ago..so I was extremely surprised afterwards when I stopped shouting because I felt like such a fool..

I just made a complete and utter fool of myself in the street at 5:32 in the morning..because that’s what anger does..after all is said and done..even if you weren’t in the wrong..if you are the one screaming..you will always look crazy.

I’m calming down now..and I’ve had time to think about things..being quiet and collecting my thoughts to realise that I could have reacted in a much better way..or not even reacted at all..

That’s the annoying thing about hindsight..

..It’s always too late.

  1. No, it’s cool. People suppress their emotions way too much, they hold it in and it’s bad for them. Like boiling water in an enclosed space, the steam is going to keep building up and its going to have to come out somehow, somewhere, sometime. Better to release it slowly than to burst all at once.

  2. I agree with bonesdiary – it’s not good to suppress feelings.

    But it is good to feel good, and not angry and it helps to see the the good in things that make us angry.

    It depends on the situation – sometimes it is definitely right to feel anger – such as anger at someone’s violence to others. Other times it is destructive.

    I have told myself that when I am angry with another person, I am talking to God – that is difficult to remember in the middle of a blazing row – but the idea is there πŸ˜‰

  3. I did suppress feelings when I was younger now I don’t do that.

    • I know I do it because I don’t trust anyone with information about me or how I’m feeling..from past experience I’ve found that the people that you always seem to be there for and support will rarely do the same for you. But I guess that such is life..
