Less Anger Inward, More Anger Outward

I like certain people, but I hate humanity. How violent we are. How cruel.

I’m confused. You write all the time about being humble, being vulnerable, being kind.

I am kind—to those who are kind. I hate dumb, mean, selfish people.

Isn’t everyone selfish? You’re selfish. You’re an asshole sometimes.

I’m human, yes, and I admit when I’m wrong. But I’m tired of letting dumb, mean, selfish people ruin my life.

Your anger is refreshing. Where has this side of you been? What’s changed?

I listened too long to dumb, mean, selfish people. I internalized critical voices from my past and blamed myself for things I can’t control, things that aren’t my fault. Being angry, without causing harm, helps me heal.

    I really resonate with this answer: “I like certain people, but I hate humanity. How violent we are. How cruel.”

    Exactly how I feel about it, you summed it up quite well.
