I have been grappling with intense feelings of a powerful emotion: Anger.

My anger burns hot and feels dangerous, yet at the same time it can be empowering. In a world where anger is often seen as unacceptable, the question of what to do with it and how it can be useful is becoming increasingly relevant to me. It can be a challenge to navigate our emotions, especially those that are considered taboo or unacceptable in society. I'm learning that anger can be a catalyst for growth and change, if we are willing to face it head on.

Anger is a feeling that has been a constant presence in my life, stemming from a variety of sources - things like; my relationship with my family, past experiences of bullying, conflicts with friends and co-workers. I am also deeply impacted by larger societal issues, from the systemic injustices in our world, to hyper-capitalism and the pressure to constantly be "doing" instead of simply "being."

My anger has been a powerful force in my life, and I've realized it's essential to acknowledge it, process it, and channel it in a productive way. It's not always easy, and it's crucial for my own growth and well-being. I'm grateful for the moments where I've been able to confront my anger and understand the roots of it. I’m grateful for friends that shine a light on my Shadow. By naming my anger, feeling it fully, and moving through it, I have been able to transform my relationship with this emotion. This has allowed me to find a way to use it as a source of strength and motivation.

I understand that everyone's experience with Anger is unique. I hope you can discover a healthy relationship with your Anger. I hope you find yourself un-afraid to feel your emotions fully and completely. I hope you are able to find support in community, and work through your own feelings of anger in a transformative way.
