Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. Gautam Buddha
Anger is a negative emotion. All the saints and all the scriptures, and of course, all the anger management gurus say so.
To an extent, I agree.
But if you hold on to anger not because you want to punch someone in the face, but because you want to remember never to be a victim again, is it such a bad thing?
If you hold on to anger against injustice, and express it in song, in art, in writing is it such a bad thing?
Do you hold on to anger, or do you let it go? Or does it depend on the circumstance?
Today, Kelley at Writtled is hosting my interview about the process of writing and about A to Z Stories of Life and Death. My thanks to Kelley, and hope some of you will come chat with me there!
