Anger Vs. Sadness

Meditation’s biggest impact on my life was introspection. I feel like I know myself better now than I ever did before. I used to only really know two parts of myself: the happy me and the angry me. There was a fine line between the them and I could barely tell when I was about to cross it. During meditation I would feel the emotions arise and instead of getting angry, I would look closer and see that most the time I wasn’t angry, I was actually hurt, tired, indifferent  or heartbroken. I never knew there was such a difference between these emotions. They all were just categorized as anger. I still sometimes jump to anger first, but now I can back up and see that I am not angry. It makes letting people know how I feel much simpler and I have an easier time getting close to people because I am letting them know how I feel now, because I am not blowing up.
