The Upside of Anger

December 27
The Upside of Anger

It’s all a process... So what if my process takes longer than most...
"People don't know how to love. They bite rather than kiss. They slap rather than stroke. Maybe it's because they recognize how easy it is for love to go bad, to become suddenly impossible... unworkable, an exercise of futility. So they avoid it and seek solace in angst, and fear, and aggression, which are always there and readily available. Or maybe sometimes... they just don't have all the facts.

Anger and resentment can stop you in your tracks. That's what I know now. It needs nothing to burn but the air and the life that it swallows and smothers. It's real, though - the fury, even when it isn't. It can change you... turn you... mold you and shape you into something you're not. The only upside to anger, then... is the person you become. Hopefully someone that wakes up one day and realizes they're not afraid to take the journey, someone that knows that the truth is, at best, a partially told story. That anger, like growth, comes in spurts and fits, and in its wake, leaves a new chance at acceptance, and the promise of calm..."- Evan Rachel Wood as Lavender Wolfmeyer in The Upside of Anger

I watched The Upside of Anger tonight.
I recommend it to anyone who is still holding onto something that really isn't there anymore.
Sometimes the upside of anger is the person you become.
I think I'm just about there...at least I know who I'm not.
Funny how a simple movie can help you along the way.
