I am aware that I have a lot of internal anger. I've struggled with it my whole life. I think this is primarily because I was bullied as a child and forbidden by my mother to defend myself for religious reasons. This and a whole host of other little injustices have left me feeling angry almost 24/7. Buddhist philosophy is something that seems to be in vogue these days and I've been encouraged by certain people at one time or another to try adopting some of the Buddhist principles in an effort to address my anger. However, it seems to me that the Buddhist attitude about anger is to eliminate it from your life, as if it has no place in the life of someone who is "happy". This seems in direct conflict with what is espoused in books about TMS. Thoughts??
