IF YOUR THOUGHTS ARE RACING IN ONE, ANGRY, FRUSTRATED, INSENSED, AND HURT DIRECTION, PLEASE DO NOT ACT ON THESE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS JUST YET. QUESTION YOURSELF…WHERE DID ALL OF THIS ANGER AND FRUSTRATION ORIGINATE? ASK OTHERS, WHO HAVE ANNOYED YOU OR INSULTED YOU (as opposed to making direct or accusatory statements) ABOUT THEIR INTENTIONS AND MOTIVATIONS.

MOST OF US FIND OUT THE HARD WAY THAT WE CANNOT AFFORD ANY MORE ENERGY FOR THE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS OF ANGER, FEAR, ANXIETY, SHAME AND EMBARRASSMENT. UNTIL THEN, SOMEHOW, THERE SEEMS TO BE A UNIVERSAL INSTINCT THAT BY PUTTING IN TIME, MENTAL EFFORT, AND ENERGY (RELIVING, BEING ANGRY, RE-TRAUMATIZING), WE CAN ROLL BACK TIME, RECEIVE JUSTICE, BE VINDICATED, OR THE ISSUES IN QUESTION CAN BE RESOLVED IN OUR FAVOR.

MAYBE, WHEN IT IS PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY SAFE, WE SHOULD SLOW DOWN TO LOOK AND SEE WHY OUR FIRST INSTINCT WAS TO LOOK AWAY.

Others’ suffering and loneliness Our unhappiness Our anger Our shame and embarrassments Our relationships Our lives in disarray Our wanton consumerism Charles Tadros, M.D. May 4, 2021
