Angry Talk (Comic Style)

Because we are fearful and are unable to eradicate our fears, we get angry.

Anger is a way of  making us feel better about ourselves and less afraid. That’s why inadequate people become bullies.

It’s easy to be angry. It’s easy to get addicted to the adrenaline rush of anger. It is hard to stop anger and, like all other emotions, if you try to suppress it, you’ll only make it worse.

The way of mindfulness is not to attach ourselves to emotions. It is just anger; it is not your anger. You don’t have to hang on to it. If you examine it calmly it will, like all other thoughts that pass through your mind, disappear.
