"Anger can also make you sick if you're exposed to it for too long [...] Feeding it can be your only goal. In the end, you'll feed yourself to it to keep the flame alive, along with everyone around you."
Elizabeth Bear's 'Ancestral Night' has a lot of good writing in it, but there are a few bits meditating on anger and forgiveness that stick out.
"Forgiveness is an obligation you take on not to act punitively on your anger. To interrogate it when it arises, and accept that you have made the choice to be constructive rather than destructive."
Then, a moment later, "anger is an inoculant. It gets your immune system working against bullshit."
There's a lot of good stuff in this book.
You are not defined by your worst moment. If a person loses their temper and does something bad that isn’t their true self coming to the surface. That’s not what a human is. A human is a system that responds to inputs. Load enough trash into the intake and the motor will kick. The idea that a person is just a bunch of layers of obfuscation on top of a core of darkness is Freudian pseudoscience.
