Anger and its energy

Anger is an interesting emotion, isn't it?

We women often are uncomfortable feeling or expressing it. We know the names that can be used for women who are angry! We don't want to be called that. But we're human, so we do feel it from time to time.

There's a delicate balance with anger. It's important to know how to use the energy it contains—and especially important to know when to let the anger go.

Anger contains energy. If we channel it, that energy can help us do what needs to be done and say what needs to be said. Unlike sadness or depression, it can fuel us and get us through a situation. But then there comes a point at which that anger can become a ball-and-chain around your ankle. Then it's time to let it go. Drop it like a hot potato.

Above all, do not let anger build a permanent structure on your property! Don't let it take up full-time residence in your heart. Oddly enough, if anger does come to settle in your heart and your life, you'll find that it sucks away your energy. You'll feel exhausted by it.

Strange, isn't it, that initially anger's energy can help you—but that very soon, the reverse will occur. The anger will drain you. Just remember, anger is an emotion—neutral. It's how you use it that makes it a positive or negative force in your life.
