It’s not anger that is the true villain here
But fiery frustration.
It is the gateway to the greater toxic emotion
But anger isn’t the first step.
Frustration is sometimes a notorious swing
It can move by so fast
That you’re in the anger zone
Before you even know it.
Controlling your anger begins here
When it is still a smaller step.
Don’t let your frustration grow so quickly
That it speeds by without anything to stop it.
Inspired partially by the ongoing fight against lashing back at pre-teens and teenagers and also from last week’s Three Word Wednesday.
