1 year agoAs human beings, our nature is to continually be driven by our feelings , emotions and actions, we can study the physiological aspects of anger all we want. But in the end, I believe we must search beyond into the spiritual realm; often unknown , overlooked or simply ignored. As a believer in the all knowing creator, there's nothing more powerful than being overtaken by the spirit and letting him make the changes from within.
