The message above was tweeted by Boona Mohammed back in February 2012 and I loved it! I re-tweeted it and posted it on my networks to share.. 2 days ago, I came across a colleague of mine and there was that word mentioned during the conversation and I very reluctantly sunk deep… and deeper into that thought which I had with utmost difficulty managed to lose track of! And yet, when the word was brought up again, I couldn’t resist indulging back into those disturbing thoughts.
Anger. One word short of Danger. So it is!
Anger blocks out the human sense and takes over the mind and heart and keeps spreading throughout till it eventually takes over the whole body, and once that happens, one has the power and capacity to hurt another.. with words, actions or even physically. Anger is dangerous on more levels if one realizes that not just others, it makes one sensitive and susceptible to getting hurt with the same force as well. The truth is that at the end of the day, anger does cool off. Whatever that takes over the body and soul of the being as anger, does bid adieu. Anger carves itself a place to adjust.. and when it departs, it leaves an empty space.. a hole in the soul.. and all one is left with is remorse of the much conveniently questionable .. “what ifs?”
Till about a couple of years back, I did not know I had so much anger within me. When I am angry, I later realize how different I have become from the person I was.. it is because I have started to let worldly things, factors and people effect me. I have come across many angry people in the course of my existence that make me wonder if it is even remotely possible for one to be free of anger.. only if we ponder and question ourselves in isolation, is there really such a thing as an angry person? Do we really get angry and do hurtful things to others and ourselves with an evil intention? Well you’d be judged anyway but that’s a different story 🙂 And we gradually begin to comprehend the supporting factors to this emotion that we call anger. We realize that all of us, each and every one of us is fighting a battle of sorts; if only there were a way to stop ourselves being taken over by such a negative emotion..
I don’t know which blog the following text belongs to, but it made complete sense..
There is so much that we are and so much that we aspire to be, that it is a shame for us to define ourselves by the very emotion that smothers our voices and only extends hurt, fear, and pain to others, especially our spouses and children.
There is a reason why the wise remind us time and again: ghussa haram hai.. (Anger is forbidden)..
Sara! I love you for this post! 🙂 🙂 — Anger is undoubtedly the most evil of all! People are unable to identify their anger — they may not be yelling but they may be angry on the inside. And then they need a breakthrough to realize don’t be angry–forgive and move on and forgiveness is not by just saying that you forgave– believe in it and think ahead! Ego and Anger go hand in hand. Humbles is the key to overcome anger. If someone yells at you don’t yell back instead be humble to just let go! It’s hard but its not impossible and above all it saves you from loosing all you have in life and that is RELATIONS:)
thank u so much so appreciating it.. 🙂 ❤
And yes, you are absolutely right.. ego and anger have a strong relation.. people value their ego more than relationships, and some would do anything, even lie.. to destroy others' happiness. weird destructive species..
