One thought on “It’s Okay to Get Angry. – Maria Yang, MD

  1. I see a difference between anger and rage. Rage is when anger is in the driver’s seat. Anger is an emotion that lets us know that something is not ok. Something that is happening needs to stop or something that is not happening needs to start. The hard part is holding our anger in order to explore it, to contemplate what is causing the anger, to see if there are other aspects of the situation we need to look at. The purpose of this is so that we can then act effectively. Rage is rarely effective. Contemplative action that arises out of anger can be very effective at rectifying injustice.
