Anger [Aug. 3rd, 2014|09:57 am]
Tony Grist
I was angry about our plans for next week being thwarted so I cleared out the garage and cleared out the cupboard in our bedroom and had a very large bonfire.

John Hurd says "anger is weakness". He was talking about acting- and how he's not impressed by shouty performances- but I think the remark has wider application. Anger is the last ditch- an unconscious confession that there's nothing else to fall back on.

Anger can be a good to ameliorate frustrations. It is a relief valve to counter stress i think.

Yes, it's that as well. And sometimes it works.

But if it doesn't work it can be disastrous- because what further options are there apart from humiliating collapse or a recourse to violence?

Sometimes it's all we have. But it's awful when we get to that point...

I always feel ashamed of myself afterwards
