Anger is a double-edged sword.
It can serve a Godly purpose and be an expression of Love, or it can be a manifestation of your own pride and ego.
Perhaps you get angry because you feel wronged or have been hurt
Perhaps you get angry because you believe you deserve better or believe you have been unfairly treated
Perhaps you get angry because you didn’t get your way or your expectations weren't met
Perhaps you get angry because you have no other way to express yourself or it's your way of being heard
We don’t want to go looking for reasons to be angry, but it’s sometimes inevitable
However, it’s important to remember;
That anger should not mean the abandonment of Love, but should rather be an expression of it
Your anger should not be scornful or wish harm to another
Your anger should not translate to spite, setting out to intentionally wound
It should not be contemptuous in its nature.
This it not an argument against anger, dare I say anger is sometimes very much needed
It’s better to get angry than to be indifferent; because at the very least the anger wakens something inside and let’s you know you are alive
That you stand for something and it matters,
That you have some convictions that serve some higher purpose, not just your own
It is here where anger is best served
As an expression of Love and a vehicle that works to purify and heal a person
That calls on them to be better, to do better, to live up to their God given potential.
So I suggest you always seek to make friends who force you to level up.
Those push you and take to you to uncomfortable places – but that ultimately want the best for you.
There is no greater tragedy than that of unrequited Love
Of potential left unfulfilled
Or watching someone wasting their life away
It’s difficult not to get angry with that
So allow for anger, but the kind of anger that will help raise someone up, not tear them down.
