Anger is a Black Hole
When people feel or express anger, they are likely to follow certain patterns. Some people experience quick flashes of anger that are easily remedied or forgotten. Others develop anger slowly, and take a long time to forgive. Everyone has their own way of seeing things.
Anger blocks your perception of situations as they are, and colours everything darkly. Anger can suck you in. You are right to feel angry. You are right to demand better of people. You deserve vindication, justice, endless apologies from the party that wronged you. Stay angry too long, and you’ll only deserve the feelings of loneliness that follow.
Anger is a Black Hole is a series of three. The first brain shows anger obscuring your view inward. The second brain shows anger radiating in the brain, affecting other parts and functions. The third piece is a representation of the limbic system (specifically including the amygdale), the primitive part of the brain in charge of our most basal emotions. All perceptions are coloured black, no light gets in.
Sometimes when you are the type to stay angry, you are entirely wrong to stay so angry. The offending party apologises. You find out that they were right to do what they did, they had good reason. It is selfish to stay so angry. You can’t hold it against the offending party. You have no right to demand endless apologies. It is in poor taste, after all, to rub someone’s nose in their mistake after they apologise. If you’re still angry, if you can’t just let it go, you might end up pushing it down where it can fester and obscure everything you think you know.
