Our world right now is very angry, and quite possibly because it is not being processed properly, it is growing. The violence we see, this is unhealthy anger. We see this often in divorce, one parent will use their kids to hurt the other parent. Again, this is violent. Not ok. Ever. If you are doing this you are a child in an adults body, behaving like a child. A violent child.I often say this is a commentary on why the person is divorcing someone who behaves this way.
If you are angry and you are painting graffiti on other peoples buildings and belongings, you are not in a healthy place. You need help. This is never acceptable nor should it be tolerated.

When we have boundaries with others we are sending them a message that we are worthy of being treated appropriately and we are sending our self the same message. So yes, be angry when you are not treated well, healthy anger managed properly is ok. If you are not angry when you are mistreated then we should wonder why not?
The answer is yes. Unequivocally Yes with a capital Y. The question is , does the constant barrage of bad news we are exposed to in local, national and international media affect us negatively? There are some things we can never…
