Anger is a double-edged sword.

It can serve be an expression of Love on one hand, or a manifestation of your ego and insecurity on the other

Perhaps you get angry because you feel wronged

Perhaps you’ve been hurt

Perhaps you get angry because your expectations weren’t met

Perhaps you get angry because it’s your way of being heard

We don’t want to go looking for reasons to be angry, but it’s sometimes inevitable –

Anger can be an expression, a means to try and right a wrong.

If you didn’t get angry at injustice, this is more concerning than anger in and of itself.

Anger is sometimes very much needed

It’s better to get angry than be indifferent; 

Because anger awakens something inside and reminds you that you are still alive

That you are human.

That you stand for something and it matters,

That you have some convictions that serve a higher purpose, not just your own

It is here where anger is best served

But anger should never be the abandonment of Love, but rather an expression of it.

Anger should never be scornful or wishing harm to another,

Anger should not be spiteful, setting out to intentionally wound

It should never be contemptuous in its nature.

This would be a distortion of its intended purpose.

Allow for anger to be the kind of anger that will help raise someone up, not tear them down.

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

    There’s a great symphony in sadnessA million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt. Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason.But incomprehensible in...
  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
