Let’s be honest, there’s a lot to be angry about in this world. But what good does your anger actually do? Sure, it can feel good to have something to fight for, but are you making your own life happier? Are you changing the world in a positive way? Your anger can feel right, but its often holding you back in more ways than one. We’re firm believers in the power of choice, and that includes your emotions.
