Get Mad

A friend of mine posted this on Instagram recently and I thought, "Oh no, please don't."

A gradiated purple and pink background with text on it that says "I don't get mad anymore. I just accept it for what it is and move on." It is from a website called Simple Reminders.

I get the appeal. Saying, "it is what it is" and then letting it go and moving on is the ultimate in non-attachment right? You'd be a zen little duckling, just letting everything run off your back and living your life.

I guess the problem is that some of the things that make me the most angry are social justice issues and inequalities, and people accepting those for what they are and moving on is exactly what's made all these problems in the first place.

So no, I'm going to keep getting mad.
