When you express at least you move things. When you get angry and avoid, hide the anger--you are counterfeiting your relationship to whatever event, object or person.
Because it is what you would have said, had you been honest. And had you been honest, things around you would move. Good or bad, they would move. You can count on it.
We live in a socially counterfeit world. The strange news is that its always been this way. The bad news is that at no other point in human history, have people been this passive.
Martin Luther King said those who protect passivity, are enabling the perpetrator.
All is holy. Dont listen to the violins, the ship really is going down.
Deal with conflict. Tell people what they are. Better, tell people what you think they are.
