Expressing the Emotion of Anger, 1 of 3: Common Misconceptions About Anger

Anger is like a lemon. It’s easy to overreact to its reputed punch (no pun intended), and quickly develop a distaste for it, dismissing its potential and unique value to your health.

Also like anger, lemons are balancing agents. They cleanse and set the pH in your body in balance. At the same time, they were never intended by nature to be digested as a main course.

The health benefits of lemons are many, in other words, if  you know when and how much to use in proportion to other ingredients, and so on.

Similarly, anger is an emotion that activates, as an agent that helps you regulate and reset the balance of seemingly opposing inner strivings — to stay connected to your self and life around you — yet never meant to be overused as an emotion to hide or to hide behind.
