The thing about anger is that it seems very bad, but it feels very natural, like hunger, or cold. Except that when you’re hungry, you know to eat, and when you’re cold, you grab a jumper. Sometimes, when I’m angry, I eat and grab a jumper, but it doesn’t really work. Anger is a feeling that comes when something’s wrong: the keys are lost, the bus is late, politicians lock children on islands. No matter how many times you count to 10, or listen to whales meditating in Thailand, the anger doesn’t leave.
