The Outlet

The Outlet
All of us in community – and especially, perhaps, the people with responsibility – may carry a load of frustration which cannot always be expressed in a group without endangering the community itself. The more sensitive we are, the more we are weighed down by feelings of frustration, anger, anxiety, incompetence, sadness and apathy. We may need to say how much we detest someone who challenges us, without being accused of ‘lack of charity’. We may need this outlet for our emotions if we are to rediscover peace.
