I recall feeling anger for a long time. I directed it inward. However, 2+years ago I entered therapy and slowly became in touch with my emotions. Unfortunately, expressing myself in a calm and rational manner did not provide the capitulation sought by certain people in my life. It seems that society prefers men lash out in anger so that they can adopt the role of victim. Depriving them of this identification is characterized as emotional abuse. Sadly, we are immature and unwilling to accept reality. It is always easier to blame others and cast ourselves as heroic or innocent.
