The Upside of Anger

Feeling anger is not always a bad thing. If someone crosses your boundaries you should feel some anger. That’s okay. What’s not okay is to hold that anger in and let it eat away at you. What’s not okay is tolerating disrespect.

I’m not saying throat punch or crotch kick this individual. (Though lets me honest, we’ve all thought about it!) No, I’m talking about harnessing your anger and productively addressing this individual with the issue at hand. If you do not do this, you are setting yourself up to be a doormat. Address the issue. If it continues, then you know this individual does not respect you.

Let’s face it, most people will take advantage if given the opportunity. It’s sad but it’s the truth. There are bad people in this world and then there are people. Everyone has crossed someone’s boundaries at one time or another.

If you don’t address it, then the behavior cannot be corrected. Once addressed one of two things will happen. The other person will change their behavior or they won’t. If not, that puts the ball back in your court.

    1. Explanation why I’m human. Lol! And yes not a saint. I can get pissed off and tolerate too much bs. I used to be more passive. Not anymore. I will tell someone exactly what’s what. When you are kind hearted you better learn to stand up for yourself or you are in trouble in this world. But once I’ve spoke my mind, I try to move on from it. Easier said than done. Again, I’m human.
