Anger is often seen as a negative emotion. This is because anger can lead to some horrible scenarios. On the other hand, anger has helped people create some positive change in their life. On certain occasions, anger has led to people creating positive change in our world.
If we’re all created in the image and likeness of God, then anger was created with a purpose. Let’s not forget that every deity that exists, has a story of when they got angry. From Jesus to Thor, there are stories of anger in every religion.
How I realized that anger is a tool
Over the past week, I’ve experienced quite a lot of anger based on things happening in the world and in my personal life. The Black Lives Matter movement has definitely stirred up a lot inside me.
Like many people, I grew up learning how to suppress any type of anger. The past week, however, it felt like too much to suppress. This has led me to show up angry on last week’s training, resulting in the best training ever. I was amazed at how powerfully I brought the message across.
That was when I started playing with anger. I allowed myself to get angry at the small injustices that I’ve allowed in my life. The more often I got angry, the more often I used my voice powerfully. Not to mention all the positive feelings I’m now able to feel because I’m not numbing myself to anger anymore.
