"Rob, you haven't seen me when I get angry."
A friend of mine said this to me, recently. No, he wasn't talking about becoming The Hulk. What he was saying, however, was that although he is a seemingly tender and gentle person when in public, he is an incredibly volatile person when he's alone or just with his family.
In other words, he described, he's sometimes explosive in private. Like, when he and his wife fight. Or when his kids won't stop whining or complaining. Or when he feels like he can't make ends meet. That's when the anger in him boils over into something else.
Is anger always bad?
No. It's not.
