my life, poetry, and art
if I didn't notice your upbeat sounding comment, I would have thought of anger and sadness and disappointment as in red for heart and heavy blackness over it. But maybe it is cheery as in chocolate dipped strawberry. I guess I'll just have to wait!
Heart about to burst?
grief pain and shame.. but maybe i'm just projecting... nevertheless, the black surrounding paint strokes appear to be containing SomeThing....something strong.
anonymous-i wrote that looooong after i made the art!itsagift-is that really what you think?
LS-It's just a guess. I'm not so good at it and I didn't speak to you last night so I'm only guessing from the night before... :)Think you'll spill the beans and let us know soon? Cuz I'm not sure what it is.Hmmmmm...another guess? I'm clueless...tell me, tell me!
itsagift, i made it just after we spoke that night, not last night.
So what's the emotion then? Wanting to smash someone else's heart? (Not lol)
C'mon, when are we going to find out the answer?
i made this painting when i was ANGRY! lol
Hey, I was right all along. I hope you got over it.
Hey LS (I'm the grief/shame/pain commenter)I just read what someone said about getting over it and want to say that anger is a part of us that we don't get over. It is like a fire that we can transform into something creative.Create Little Sheep! Create!!
first anon-yup, you were. can you give yourself a name though, so i don't have to call you anon?second anon-we definitely don't get over anger, just learn to deal with it! i will continue to create, don't worry! and can you please give yourself a name too?
I am anononymous 1. I'm at a loss as to what I should call myself but I will leave it as "someone who cares". I don't know that we can't ever get over anger. Often anger masks other emotions that we are not equipped to deal such as sadness, or disappointment, or feeling inadequate (or a host of others). It's sometimes easier to be angry and to project our anger than to delve into what's really fuelling our emotional reactions. Once we can face those feelings which are hidden from us (at that time), we will probably feel alot less angry and deal with what's really bothering us. Of course, there are always instances when the anger is an appropriate reaction to whatever is happening and there are ways to express angry feelings in a socially acceptable way. If we can resolve a situation that has made us angry, the anger should dissipate.
So I wasn't that far off...
i guess what i meant is, we don't get over anger, we learn to deal with it and work through it. it should dissipate with work, it's true, but that's not "getting over it".
c'mon, i know you're reading this! what do you think?
