RAGE

You are a great communicator. Thank you for sharing your blessing with us. The problem I have is not letting the rage in. You are so right. That is a healthy and good (true that it's painful and upsetting to say the least) thing. What's not a good thing is to act while experiencing one's "moral outrage". Giving that outrageious poison time to be neutralized before one acts or in fact just "letting it go" is so important. For me that's usually the hardest part. It's while that moral outrage is at its height that all those excellent "comebacks" or "gotcha" ideas seem ripe and ready to act on. That, as you know is the perfectly wrong time to do anything. For me, that is the hardest part. Again, thank you and Shona Tova.

You can't change the behavior of others however, you can change your own.
