We are allowed to feel anger. We are allowed to be mad, irate, to detest people or situations, to be furious. We NEED to be this way occasionally. Anger is normal. Anger is healthy. Anger is also dangerous…

“When someone is experiencing and expressing anger, he or she is not using the thinking (cortex) part of the brain, but primarily, the limbic center of the brain.”

Simply put, the limbic center of the brain is where your survival skills are located. When we are angry, we are not thinking clearly. When we are angry, we are simply trying to protect ourselves from any type of outside predator. When we are angry and make decisions is when we allow them to win. I want to FEEL anger but I do not want to STAY ANGRY.

In this moment, I remind myself who is in control of my entire well being. I am.
