But I absolutely can. I have an endless supply of justified anger.
Just because sometimes my exhaustion grows to a point where my anger is eclipsed, doesn’t mean the anger is gone. It’s just not presently center stage. It’s still there. It’s still justified. It’s not going anywhere so long as there’s shit in the world setting it off.
Anger is not a bad emotion, either. It is not poison. it is not toxic, or wrong. The “all-positive” message forced on us has given it that implication, but it is false. Anger is human. Anger is a reaction to injustice, to hurt, to pain. It is real and valid.
It can fester, yes - but so can perpetual saccharine glee. it’s what you do with your emotions that determines how positive or negative, how healthy or destructive, it is for you in that moment.
So I’m gonna sit here with my eternal fury bonfire and keep on being motivated to be better, to improve, to do less shitty things, and to help those who are hurt as much as possible. Fury fuels that for me.
