anger is not bad





Anger is not bad. Anger can be a very positive thing, the thing that moves us beyond the acceptance of evil.

Never thought about it just like that before - wow.

Neither have I, Carrie. Guess it is just important how we direct our anger. Thanks, Wanda, for giving us this food for thought.

Beautiful!
I make an effort to celebrate (I know that sounds weird) anger...especially for Coen...we spend a lot of time talking about frustrations and making sure that he knows it is okay to be angry, and how to deal with it, etc.
I want him to be able to express every emotion that he has (and I am working on that too!).
Great quote!

Yeah. Isn't it a relief? SC, I think it is great that you are celebrating your son's emotions. This is such a good concept that I think I will do a follow up post on it. Might be good for a series, depending on what people have to say....

Thanks for stopping by, y'all.
