Is it okay to be aggressive? What is healthy aggression?

“If you don’t control your temper, your temper will control you?

Stephen King

On the way to spiritual growth, I have always been considering how it is essential to be good with others and show only positive aspects of my character. I tried to be good even if other people treated me aggressively and then I felt offended. I could not understand why people behave like that and the feeling of offence was ruining me from the inside.

That is to say, it was happening to me even in childhood, instead of revealing my offence I hide it deeply and then suffered. Today, I would like to talk to those people who may think in such a way. Do you suffer from an offence? Do people aggressively treat you and the result you are closed down? Do you think like those who behave aggressively are bad and you should stay good because it is right?

Aggression can be healthy. It is okay when you can stand up for yourself. Don’t be afraid of other people’s reaction. If they humiliate, manipulate and hurt you, say your point of view, get things under your control. Show this one that you respect yourself and never allow such attitude to yourself. Love yourself and be proud of who you are.

Don’t think that you are obliged to be good in all aspects. I think that spiritual growth is the way of acquaintance with own “self”. You have both good and bad features of character. And it is okay. You are yin and yang, or black and white. Find out your yin and yang and make it to stay in harmony. The main aim of spiritual growth is to find balance. The balance between your good and bad.
