Anger is just a mask
For failed expectations.
If we had no expectations of being treated fairly, why would it anger us or even surprise us when we are not?
Expectations are the seeds of disappointment.
The question is, how do we live without fostering this human nature of expecting based on our own personalities, desires and hope?
it is a sticky one.
But I know that I am never angry, when I see it coming. It is when I tell myself, surely, surely, not. But that is my hope talking not my logic.
Hope! Ha. Expectation and hope are intrinsically linked. You have to believe without proof which will only follow and can be justified or regretted.
Yep. Logic is the way to go. We don’t always like what we hear, but maybe we will, but it is solid. No denying that.
