the whole “anger is poisonous and bad for u” mindset was created by people who didn’t want to deal w the justified anger directed at them by others
anger is powerful and important, anger is fuel, and only you determine whether or not your anger is good or bad for you
Anger is indeed incredibly bad for you and your health and, in extreme cases, others around you.
What is important is recognizing when you are angry, justified or otherwise, and having a healthy way of dealing with it.
Yes it is an emotion, yes it is okay to feel angry sometimes. You can’t help it!
It is not, however, good to hold onto that anger. It leads to plenty of other issues both emotionally/mentally and even physically.
So a little reminder to everyone out there, don’t repress your anger but don’t blow up in ways that harm yourself or others. Find a healthy middle ground.
Feel angry, recognise that emotion, breathe through it and then deal with what made you feel that way in an appropriate manner.
