Anger is anger and that’s not nice in the first instance. But when anger is misguided, it reels off like a tornado making destruction colour the landscape, releasing words in different directions – not minding who the missile hits or the aftermath.
A well-planned anger against a system (gone wrong) or ideology would state what is not okay, and how to correct it, not just blast everyone involved and go to the next victim. How have you helped the situation? How has your invectives changed anything except expose your own inadequacies in the matter and your hidden hatred for your subject of discussion or let’s call a spade what it is, your lack of adequate understanding and sometimes low self-esteem when compared to what you are ranting about.
The world is moving on and constantly changing, we have to go beyond the many complains and get to the point that we address what is not okay no matter whose ox is gored, proffer solutions, point out the way to seek that help and move on. Like my friend the President – FK does, she brings out the ‘wahala’, and compares a similar situation that had happened and how it was solved and tells us how to sort ours. Do I always agree with her? No, but by the time we share understanding from her view, mine and every other person that joins in the conversation, we find answers.
Whatever your grievance is, make it balanced. Something you will be proud of years from now. I don’t want to say much. But if you do, I will oblige you. Enjoy your Sunday.
