Today I would like to discuss a topic completely irrelevant to the spirit of the days: Anger.
Well, we’re humans, and humans lose their temper sometimes. In fact, many people hate the fact that it is Christmas. In fact, the fact that I’ve been worshiping Christmas these past few days in my blogs may have gotten on the nerves of a few of you.
Anyway, so about anger. My question is this: When, if ever, is anger justified? Is there ever a time when you’re right to be angry and you right to speak up about it?
To be honest, I don’t think so. I believe anger, like all emotions, should be controlled before they take you over. Acting when you’re emotional and with the lack of logic is always a mistake.
But on the other hand, don’t get me wrong. I do believe in speaking up when you feel you’ve been treated unfairly. People, whether they intended to or not, do treat others unfairly (unbelievable, right?). The point is it’s up to you to defend your morals.
But even then, acting on anger is a mistake.
So what do you think? Is anger ever justified? Should we ever let it take us over, or should we reason with it? Should we discuss it and defend what we believe, or should we let it pass? Please let me know.
