Boomer’s Rants (Anger and Restraint)

There are times in everyone’s life that anger will rear it’s ugly head.  This is the time when our true nature gets tested most.  Do we lose our cool, lash out physically and get into a fight?  Do we lash out verbally  at the some one, that angered us and get into an argument?  Do we stay back from confrontation and let it fester in our hearts?  Definitely leading to nothing good!…..or…..We could simply let it go.  We may actually think to ourselves that Karma (if you believe in that sort of thing) will kick in, and whomever it is we are mad at will get their just desserts in the end.  All providing of course that we are not our own worst enemy.  It could be our fault that we are angry.  It is something that is very hard to admit.  As there is no such thing as perfection,  we expect it out of others everyday.  Why could it not be our own imperfection that angers us?  (This is anger born of our own frustration).  Then we would become more likely to steer that anger in the wrong direction and at the wrong people.   Let us suppose that the anger is due to the fact that there is a lot of unfairness in our life.  Can we allow ourselves to step back and think before we act on these emotions? Is it possible that we may actually channel the feelings we have towards a positive solution?  I believe so, however,  you have to be an optimist.  You need to believe that something good comes out of everything that happens to us.  I know it is hard to think like that.  It actually coincides with the line “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”.  This holds true for emotional as well as physical challenges.  Going through some emotional and financial hardships myself lately, it is easy for me to see why people lose their cool.  It is also easy to see how some people have already developed that inner strength.  Their tests came early in life and they were able to endure.  Whatever the case may be, we must not let the demons that share our emotions and pains defeat our strengths.  We have to fight past the inner challenges, if not for ourselves, for the people who are counting on us.  Family friends loved ones.  I do believe it is those people who give us our strength.  So, the next time you feel like lashing out, (lately i have felt it a lot), think of others you may hurt due to your actions.  Maybe come up with a better way to solve your dilemma.

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
