Anger is your friend

What an interesting month I have had. I have felt a lot of anger and on one occasion, wanted to box the ears off a rude driver who parked me in, after trying to hurry the kids & I out of a parking space.

One week later, I counselled my 4 year old, that if one of his mates punched him again, that he should punch him back. Seriously, it seemed like my answer to everything was a box around the ears.

If you don’t know me, you need to get how NOT MATT this is. If you ask me what my dream is, I would say WORLD PEACE. I am sure you get the irony.

After a session with my relationship coach, I got the distinction that ANGER is simply the souls way of telling me that I am not taking responsibility for the whole of my own reality.

I was being a victim and not realising that I get to choose how I feel at any given moment by the degree of my attachment to what is happening around me.

It's just another example of how we need to remind ourselves daily, that it’s all a game of make believe.


  1. I'm not an anger person but today I think I am very angry or hurt. I am not sure if there is a difference, all I know is I want to feel angry as this emotion need release. I am sure tomorrow will bring better days.

  2. About 20 years ago I had viral pneumonia. I lost 11 kilos in 10 days, and it took me a long time to recover. I found I was very angry a lot of the time. The anger got me up and moving most days. It may have been the manifestation of some kind of post-viral depression. If not for the extreme anger and frustration I felt at being so debilitated I would never have found the energy to become as fit and healthy as I am today. I don't enjoy being angry, it's exhausting. But maybe it has some usefulness, sometimes.
