Don’t repress your healthy anger! But don’t explode either. This study seems to show that fear is harder on your body, than angry feelings.
But here’s something else revealed by the same researcher: People who responded angrily after September 11th, “were more optimistic about risk,” and preferred an aggressive response to terrorism than the merely fearful did.
I’m thinking the fearful then became scared of the angry, heaping more fear on themselves as the angry dominated the decision-making process regarding going to war, etc.
What can the fearful do now but get angry?
