Anger is a powerful emotion. It can destroy so quickly and so completely. And sometimes, what it destroys cannot be rebuilt. Anger can destroy relationships and entire lives. But the thing is, anger is also useful if it's used in the right way. When the destructive nature of anger is kept in check, it can be used for positive change. Angry indignation at the suffering or unfair treatment of others can help us create a new, more equal world. But we have to remember our Anger Rights, or that force for good will become the force of our destruction.
In this episode, Mackey breaks down the three Anger Rights and encourages us to remember that when we use our anger to lift other people up, to fight for equality, then we can bring about positive change.
-You have the right to be angry, but your anger does not have the right to have you.
-You have the right to get angry, but its not right to get there too quick.
-You have the right to be angry, but you don’t have the right to be disrespectful.
