I have never been an angry person, was never allowed to be, and I have always suppressed any angry emotions into depression, and I still do that.
Healing from severe abuse/trauma, will involve anger. Grieving involves anger. And grieving is needed.
Plus when you care deeply about humanity and suffering, this will involve anger – seeing all the abuse, suffering, harm, apathy, selfishness of society all increasing.
Many people think being angry is not okay. Which is rubbish. It is ‘how’ you express and get that anger out that matters.
So, I have bought a punch bag today 🙂
I’ve often recommended this to others and now I am taking my own advice. Now whenever I feel those anger emotions bubbling up, I can go and punch and kick my punch bag.
Going to try it out as soon as hubby has fixed it to the underneath of our deck.
Will be good exercise too, if I do it regularly.
