Expressing Anger

I don’t really know how it happened but I’ve toned down on my blog postings ever since coming back to Malaysia. I can assure you that I do not feel any less anger at things that make me angry, but for some reason, I’ve cut down on the vitriol.

Maybe it’s a sign of age. Men mellow with age – it is known. So, maybe I have just mellowed down a bit. However, I highly suspect that’s not the case but that I’ve merely had other channels to direct my anger towards. There are so many other stupid people to scream and shout at.

I have been blogging actively for about 6 years now. Granted, I have a little less time to do it these days due to career demands, but I still try to write as often as I can. So, maybe this has also contributed to less angry writing.

Also, maybe it’s because I’m now back in Malaysia and drowning in all the political drama until I’ve lost my breath to speak. There seems to be a lot of anger everywhere and in that case, I try to be the voice calling for calm instead.

But all in all, I’m still angry.

I can still feel this rage burning in me. There are just so many things that need to be done to fix things and not nearly enough time to do it all.

But the question is, who am I angry at?

Honestly, myself.
