Funny that sometimes I am angry deep down inside. It really isn’t like me – not my personality. I think maybe it is the side effect of illness or medication, but I am responsible for my emotions and my life. A little bit of the Dragon slips out and before I know it I am spitting fire and can’t quite stop the smoke or the collateral damage.
Lately I have become a very quiet person. I do at times wonder if my silence fuels the anger, but the idea is irrelevant. I will not explode.
I can do what all Dragons must— find my internal center, say my prayers, look for calm. Otherwise we are out burning down villages, ruining lives and making things unpleasant for everyone. Anger has no place ruling a dragon’s life. Give it up.
