Anger and sadness are really two sides of the same emotional coin.
When we’re sad we feel depleted, joyless, unmotivated, and helpless.
When we’re angry we feel energetic, focused, motivated, and powerful.
Both of these emotions are natural and necessary to experience in your healing journey.
Unfortunately we tend to rely on anger to avoid sadness. While anger is natural, unresolved anger can mutate into rage, bitterness, fury, or vengeance.
Anger doesn’t allow our wounds to heal and instead leaves them open and infected. Only sadness allows scars to form.
In order to move forward and have productive, healthy relationships, you have to come to terms with anger and sadness.
