Angry people are loud. Even in their silence, their anger shouts out over, around, and slices through whomever is in their presence.
If you live with an angry person, there is no escaping their turbulent, threatening energy. No momentary errand, daily school, or work offer reprieve, for their anger lives on your skin. There, it finds its way into your pores, sinking deeper and deeper into your cells. It embeds itself in the organs that keep you alive, and like a parasite, it takes life from you.
It takes great courage to disengage from angry people or the angry person. It takes time and good people to remind you: You have nothing to do with the angry person's anger. You are not the cause of their pain.
