Anger is many times a shield for shame
If you poke a wounded animal, it’ll probably lash
out. It may cower to in fear, but sometimes it
comes out as anger.
Why? For me, shame makes me more defensive.
If a person says something that could be true and I
don’t have a lot of space between my thoughts and
mind, I’ll feel very reactive.
So I learned to feel it. Most of the time. For sure
when I’m stressed or I choose to engage with a lot
at once, my mind can get overwhelmed.
