so then

Expressing anger is not my best quality
I am pretty easy going by nature
I grew up in an angry household
so it makes me very uncomfortable
but
sometimes we all get mad
justifiably mad
I wish I could let it all out
have a fit
and be done with it
without feeling guilty
without feeling sorry for the ass
that made me mad
in the first place
it's important to me
to keep my hard won inner serenity
but some things need to be said
or even screamed
I am still on the surface
like water
with sharks swimming underneath.

I keep it in too just to keep the peace. Wouldn't you like to stand in the street and scream? Come over and lets do it together. Paula

I will meet you at paulas and we can all scream together and then I will take us to lunch. O.K. I will pay but we will use Paulas senior discount.

I'm all for inner peace, but every once in a while that wild beast inside has to come out. Once it comes out, it's almost cleansing..the air is cleared and you can breath...It's not always good for the one on the other side of you that gets the full fury of that beast. (Hugs) Indigo

I feel it is better to release slowly rather than burst ..
