  • I've been verbally subdued my whole life, more or less. I find that, as I get older, that seems less of an truth. At work, I voice my opinions less casually than before. I still don't particularly like conflict, but I don't shrink away from it anymore. I also don't cry when I try to defend my position when I am angry. That has been my undoing often enough.

    Some days I rant in private with my best buddies at the office, but most of the time, my anger is easily dispersed into the atmosphere. There's really nothing much of importance to be pissed off at that I can fix, and I give most of it upto a Higher Power (Tunkasila) who takes it all off my hands, when I remember to do that, of course.

    I find it necessary less often these day, which begs the question: Has the world become a better place or have I just let go and accepted it as it is just for today? My guess is the latter.
