Anger is now symbolic. Violence , screaming, yelling, sarcasm ….. are all anger-driven but MIS MANAGED behaviors. Anger as an emotional energy exists as necessary for the protection and survival of our species. Originally, it helped us evolve and kept wild animals away from our prey ! Anger NOW as symbolic, helps protect us from injury to our SELF-CONCEPTS. And anger is ALWAYS driven by either fear or pain.
Fear or Pain. It is one or the other. Nothing more. Nothing less.
FEAR OR PAIN.
This has to do with the EGO and has nothing to do with inner strength.
