There is swahili saying that goes ‘Hasira hasara’ and interpreting it further meaning anger accompanies itself with destruction or a loss. We all get angry but what matters is to what extent or whether you have allowed it to consume the better part of us. Anger is an emotion that requires anyone to control himself or herself before it can lead to something undesirable. Anger makes people to end up fighting and especially if those involved feel they are meant to really carry the day.
I remember a time when I was very angry that I was putting sugar in my food instead of some salt only to realizing after cooling down a bit .I think anger just makes one forget what sanity is and just makes one to react in a reckless manner.
We have heard incidents where some parents have gone ahead to severely beat up their children of seriously injuring them yet in the name of just punishing them for the wrong done. But what happens is a parent will absent mindedly beat up a child only to realize when it’s too late that they have caused them physical harm. So such a parent will end up incurring other unplanned expenses to take the child to the hospital for medical check-up all because of allowing inner saturation in anger.
As human beings it can be a lie to say that we can live without getting angry because as long as we are mingling with one another then getting angry at times is definitely possible. So we ought to be cautious not to allow anger to define our course of actions. Let’s be critical thinkers even when angry because if you stop even for a second, you surely get a sane way forward. Let’s not make rush decisions in anger because whatever follows is not something that we would have desired to get or have.
