I like the honesty in this piece but I’d like to point out that anger and abuse are not the same thing. Anger is just an emotion. Something we feel, not something we do. We all feel anger sometimes. Part of being human.

Unleashing a tirade of red faced yelling and shouting and spittle flying isn’t anger — its verbal abuse. Anger is just an emotion. Something we feel. Abuse is an action. Something we do.

Everyone is entitled to feel anger. No one is entitled to be abusive.
