"At the core of all anger is a need that is not being fulfilled."
~ Marshall B. Rosenberg ~
I rarely feel anger, but when I do, it's usually one of two things: I have been blatantly disrespected, or I have unresolved emotional buildup lingering beneath the surface of my cool façade. My ire comes as an indicator light: pay attention, something is amiss.
And just because I feel anger rising doesn't mean I have to act on it, but it's not helpful to suppress it either. Like all things, it must be acknowledged, considered, and processed in time.
I let my anger guide me rather than control me. It is a warning sign and not necessarily a green light.
