Friday Writing Prompt: Anger
Read this on galpod.com.
Anger is tricky. On the one hand, women are not supposed to be angry. We are calm, gentle creatures. On the other hand, anger is what human beings feel when our boundaries are breached. In our patriarchal society, women’s boundaries are often breached. Daily, sometimes. So, it would be logical to expect women to be furious. Yet we aren’t the ones blowing up other people’s homes.
Today, I invite you to explore—but not (yet) act on—your anger. What makes you angry? What breaches your boundaries? How does anger feel in your body? Be specific: where, what colour, which way it goes. If you can feel the anger, notice when it subsides. What does it become? What action would you take if you acted on your anger? How would it unfold?
