You Mad Bro?

The short answer is no.

I realize that the last two posts and many other heavy topics I talk about on here, the way I talk about them may cause a person to think that I am angry with everyone and everything.

The truth is, that’s simply not the case.  I ask questions to try to understand why people do what they do or believe what they believe.  The opinions of other people can be vastly different than mine and that’s just fine.  I’m not mad at these people.  I do not hate them.  I’m just trying to understand how other people think most of the time.  I’m not angry though.

I do get frustrated…at myself.  Not other people though.

In everything I do I try to do it to the best of my ability, and when I could have done something better or gone about having a conversation with someone in a different possibly better way.  I do get frustrated…at myself… for not thinking things through.   I beat myself up inside my mind sometimes… “why didn’t you say this then” or “why did you do that?”  On rare occasion I snap at myself and other people can hear and then they may think I’m mad at them.  The truth is I’m only mad at myself because I could have handled the situation better.  I’m not mad at them at all.

There are those annoying situations where things happen that are completely out of your control and you have to roll with them, but I’m not talking about those.  I can deal with those.  Nobody is at fault then.  Natural disasters, plane delays.   These are not the kinds of things I’m talking about though.

I’ve heard it’s in the way that I talk, which is strange because I’m not a loud person.  I really do care about people, even though I apparently sound like I’m angry when I speak (depending on who you talk to)  This same person then gets scared when I try to speak really softly to them.

9 times out of 10 when people have accused me of being angry with them, I’m actually not.

Anger is a strange thing…and it gets way more credit than it deserves.  There is a time to be angry, the Bible gives examples, but it doesn’t happen every day.

I’m not angry, I ask questions and occasionally get frustrated or confused about things that occur in this world, but I’m not angry at people.  Those are two different deals.
