My Letter to Anger


Hi Anger,

We meet again. I miss you. Where have you been? I was calm for a good while. Then you creep right back up into my life. Why did you have to come back? I was doing so well without you. I was full of joy. I didn’t think about my hurt past. I didn’t flinch when a certain person’s name came up in conversation. Why did you have to bring your ugly face back into my life? That’s right you are ugly. You are mean. You are deceitful. You are a mess. You are unworthy of my presence. I know that you are back for me, but why did you come back?

You are not good for me. You are just like a fly that lingers around even after you smack it away. I need for you to get out of me. I need for you to be released from my life once and for all. I need for you to understand that my past is just that, my past. It does not need to come into my present. It does not need to predict my future. I have been brought up from a deep hole, a hole so deep that your friends Depression, Sadness, and Envy became acquainted with me.

I don’t need you in my life. I don’t need your friends either. I want to make some new friends. I want to be friends with Joy, Love, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. These are the friends that I want. Oh, by the way you can take your friend Anxiety with you too. We have been friends for way too long. I feel rejuvenated. I feel free.

Anger, you are not a part of my life anymore. I became friends with Forgiveness. I became friends with Blameless. I became friends with Opportunity. If we ever meet again, Anger, it will be under different circumstances. By the way, I will bring my friends Patience, Kindness, and Self-Control with me. You have fun with Heartache, Pain, and Grumpy. I hope that you all have a blissful life together.
