I've noticed that the eating disordered types tend to not get pissed off. At least not in front of anyone of value in their lives.
Perfection is the reoccurring theme.
Gotta please everyone or the world will come to an end.
Unworthiness tends to be the reason stated for such a lack of confidence….but what happens to anger?
This post is about how to get angry.
And then use that anger to your advantage. Use it to get motivated. Use it to get off your butt and stand up for yourself.
These thoughts are brought to you by Green Day, my all time favorite band, the one that makes me act like a groupie, screaming my heart out. Their sound is hard, rough, punk-ish – and really, really pissed off.
The guys that reamed out Walmart for banning their latest CD because it was a bit to REAL for them. The ones that are coming to Chicago in July and my husband got sixteenth row tickets because I told him to spare no expense so he went to a broker and got them for a small fortune but worth every penny.
I can't get enough of it, and the odd thing is the music relaxes me.
I blare their loud as hell tunes in my car or on my iPod while I work, and my brain goes into some sort of trance as I visualize all the wrong doing in my life both real and imaginary. I mean, when a song starts with the line "I'm not f-ing around," you know these punks are speaking our language!
They make me float way to la-la land so I can lambaste all the boneheads in my life that are full of crap yet they have the power. All the suits from the past that were so totally out of line and ignorant, yet I had to play their game, while I devised a scheme to stick it to em. Sort of.
So what is your deal?
Who are you pissed off at?
When do you let yourself blow?
And most of all – do you allow yourself to think, even for a moment, that perhaps you are not the one that is wrong? Maybe you have a good head on your shoulders and the role models in your life suck?
Think about it.
Then find your way to let off steam.
You'll be one hell of a lot better for it.
And maybe, just maybe, you will start to realize you have one hell of a lot to offer, and you will stop wasting your life trying to please all the losers in this world.
PS Catch Green Day TONIGHT on the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien 10:30CST/11:30EST – UPDATE HERES THE VIDEO…kinda super mellow version of them, guess they had to tone it down for the mass audience.
