I wish my little brother and sister and I had been allowed to express anger like the kid in that gif. For me, whose anger is normalised and whose anger is pathologised is huge. The gif did not press my
"cute" buttons. I saw military uniforms and a large group of people allowed to be angry. I dont do much footie either, though certainly was into active sports Just saying, how easily things can be misinterpreted and how it is important not to be too one size fits all about life.

Thank you for sharing @Appleblossom , I am sorry to hear you were not allowed to express anger as a kid It's a very important emotion, and has a lot of purpose.
Thank you for being authentic and sharing this with us.

Thanks for your reply @nashy
It had to do with limited resources ...
disadvantage accumulated over a long time ... usually does ...
Spoke today about tattoos with mental health worker in a recovery group. The "workers" were all cool and with it, but for me it brought up the family friend who had been to Auschwitz and branding cows ...
What is really special for me ... was that I was "allowed" to experss my unique take on things at the group .. it only took a couple of minutes
... and here in our posting. That is a huge thing about good practise ... and also now I have obviously found my mouth and my voice ... without being deliberately blocked ... by people in power.
