They paint it as a bad thing. Anger, aggression. And it can be, but like all things it’s a matter of degrees.
Some times it’s the one thing that gets you through a situation, through a life. Being in guard. Leaning less toward ‘hello’ and more to ‘what do you want?’
But you have to know yourself. Spent time by yourself, inside your head. Know your dark, your special brand of crazy.
Know who let pass the barriers. And if a wrong one slips through, how to kick them back out. Hard.
The key? It’s your tool, not your existence.
