Let’s have an honest conversation about anger. Many people try to avoid conflict and see anger as a negative emotion. Even the word anger can bring up anxiety and avoidance in people. However, anger is just like any other emotion as it has both a constructive and a destructive side. Anger can fuel us and focus our energy. Anger can let us know when a boundary has been crossed. But if it is left unresolved and unmoved it can turn into destructive anger or rage that can harm others and ourselves.
Without movement, anger can simmer or explode. Simmering anger and resentment can become bitterness, and I believe that bitterness is one of the least attractive traits in a human being. We do not want to connect with a person who is bitter and angry; it sucks out our energy to the point where we start to avoid that person.
