“Anger is the feeling that makes your mouth work faster than your mind.” ~ Evan Esar

I would add, “and fear,” remembering that, when we dig into it deeply, most anger is fear-based.

One thought on “Anger

  1. absolutely! I find anger is often an attempt to mask the core fear of non-existence. When I feel angry it originates with thoughts about how reality should be – I want what I don’t have, this is not ok, etc… it’s very painful and not productive to be angry about an imaginary story that is not happening, but the anger temporarily covers the deeper fear of being destroyed by What Is. Reality always wins out, though : )
