I am a child of God, there is no denying that, but one of my biggest hurdles is anger and true forgiveness of those who have wronged me. My life has been filled with ‘evil people’ – according to me – who have hurt me in ways I never thought possible. I don’t think of myself, as naive to the wickedness in men’s heart; because I have been a recipient of what lies within.
When I am wronged, I tend to withdraw. That means I have nothing to do with the person and I shut myself away, for fear of lashing out and doing or saying something I would regret. Here is where my anger lives. I have had a bad temper since childhood, and it has been my thorn. So, and to speak honestly – in order not to end up in some prison somewhere – I withdraw within myself.
But anger, doesn’t go away so easy, especially when it is unresolved. Fury is like a wildfire and it destroys everything in its path.
