If there is one emotion that I have been familiar with, it is anger. I lived with anger for most of my childhood and teenage years. It became quite comfortable and familiar so much as that most other responses such as disappointment and fear became masked by my anger.

Now what I am telling you has taken many years of prayer, contemplation, and introspection to uncover. It didn’t happen overnight, and it didn’t happen accidentally. I had to be intentional about facing my "demons" and what was hidden deep in my heart.

As a child, I got into a lot of fights. I don’t believe I was a bully but just had an extremely short fuse. I remember walking after school and a kid that I didn't know ran by me and accidentally bumped me. I took off after him and caught him at the corner and proceeded to pummel him.

I even picked fights with bigger and older kids mouthing off to them. I wasn't always angry and brooding but I would just let myself basically erupt.
