Anger is an extremely personal topic for me, as I was reared by a very angry woman, and have had to actively battle with my own anger all my life. It’s true that “angry gets shit done”, but there’s more truth in there than we think: instead of accomplishing greatness, what gets done while angry is usually shit.
Yeah, things get done, but because the fuel in our engine is bad from the start, our system suffers. Anger puts too much stress on the machine… it’s like running jet fuel in the minivan, and while one might to their destination faster, the engine will be forever damaged because of the poor choice of fuel.
Responding to anger with anger is easy, and according to ego, justified… but ego is not our friend, and just like anger, embracing it isn’t worth the cost.
