trying to eradicate anger


a: Trying to eradicate anger ~
b: trying to box with your shadow


"Trying to eradicate anger is like trying to box with your shadow: It doesn't work. Getting rid of it implies either expressing it, and possibly causing emotional damage; denying and avoiding it, which is a way of lying to yourself and can cause depression or bitterness; or repressing it, which just suppresses it until it erupts at a later time, when it can cause even more harm."
