Looking at Anger

You give me not what I want.
My anger is unjust for how
can you give me what you do not have?
I must not let your aged body
blind me to your young soul.
Fruit ripens slowly on the tree;
the one at fault, is clearly me.

    • Yes, indeed. Anger is a valuable teaching tool if we understand how to work with it. Sometimes I do. Sometimes I do not…at least during the storm. hugs, pat

  1. Reblogged this on Living Well and commented:
    anger is generally a symptom of believing that one has been unjustly treated

    I find that considering the other person’s POV and an honest look at yourself through their eyes

    often negates anger because of the just sense you get from really understanding another person’s POV

    and to be fair. sometimes other people’s POV are in fact entirely unjust

    and can be more or less disregarded. depending on the context and circumstances that are particular to anyone’s specific situation.

      • Your comments are well spoken. Anger is a fact of life. It is important that we use it well to learn what needs to be changed in ourselves or in a situation. Hugs, pat
