Cultivate your aggressive side people…
Aggression is a necessary attribute if you’re going to live a life worth living. It’s misdirected aggression that is the problem.
Aggression in context is absolutely necessary. If you attack my home and threaten my children you can expect aggression from me. Why? Because defending what you LOVE requires a show of strength and aggression. Passivity in that moment will haunt you the rest of your life.
When you fail to access and act on your strength in times of true threat you place that which you love in jeopardy.
Some of us were told we needed to “suppress” our strength and “become nice boys & girls”. This may have some truth in it but is not complete.
Being overly “nice” will undoubtedly lead you to a life of resentment, disillusionment, and oppression.
Can you be both a self-controlled & aggressive individual?
Can you hold that tension?
