I've found this to be true in life. Does it make sense to any of you?

If you dig deep enough into a person's anger, you're gonna find their pain.And behind most tough guys is a wounded little child lashing out, just like the wounded animal backed into the corner.

    Makes perfect sense to me! you rarely get angry without being hurt first!

    Are you a "tough guy"?

    I agree with you. This may not ALWAYS be the case, but generally that's true. Injustice could be a cause for the anger rather than a particular pain, but sometimes if you dig deep enough, you can see why they get so angry at injustice.

    Psychologically angry's roots are in powerlessness. People who feel they are without power or control over something important to them become angry.

    So, perhaps some anger can stem from having lost some key control long ago. But that's a gross oversimplification.

    This is so true I learned that hurt people hurt people and healthy people heal people.

    Those that are angry are also hurt and they hurt others to make themselves feel better and this is no way to live.

    It is also true that what comes out of a persons mouth reflects what it is in the persons heart.

    We need to pray for those who hurt and those who have been hurt and those who are hurting that the Lord will heal them so they can go on with their lives.

    Thank you for posting this it was very good.

    Peace be with you,

    This is true for many but not all. There are still people out there who will kill you for your shoes and have no wounded childhood or anything else for an excuse.

    dude its a bit of psychoanalys there by you but i just wanted to say its pretty true. once somethin gets on most people nerves they tend to lash out at you or even innocent bystanders. i ust admit i have felt this pain before but have contained myself. its like a white cold sting inside of you but i take a few seconds to think and relax. just think that lashing out and causing arguments isnt going to get you anywhere

    It makes perfect sense, except I would submit to you if you dig even deeper, you will find their anger and pain are rooted in fear.

    Yes, in a permanent, lifestyle kind of pain, not pain or anger in any particular instance.

    If you dig a bit deeper all you will find is fear.
