It’s amazing how the truth only ever seems to come out when we’re angry about something. It seems to happen every time.
Anger is the catalyst for expressing uncomfortable truths and emotions that are already there, bubbling under the surface. It’s often used as an excuse to say what we feel, but done in the most inappropriate of ways and at the most inappropriate of times.
When we express our thoughts through anger, it shows an unwillingness on our part, to talk or openly discuss how we feel, as opposed to saying what we feel and need to say, as part of a normal discussion. The other problem is that when we say things in anger, we intentionally set out to hurt the other person; but the reality is we only hurt ourselves more.
It’s often how we feel about ourselves that brings about the anger in us. Unfortunately, through anger we’re also more likely to hold on to a grudge and all a grudge does is entice more anger.
