Today, I saw a usually calm lady flare-up in the most unusual way. The person on the other side of the phone obviously had their hand pressed down on her buttons.
Even when she noticed the scene she was causing with passersby, she could not help herself. It was painful to watch, and seemed to get worse as people motioned to her to “calm down”. Calm down has never worked when someone is fuming. The only thing that works is to isolate the person.
Every human carries lava at their core. Lava of madness. For many, the volcano remains dormant and rarely erupts. For some it remains active and erupts frequently.
No matter how beautiful a volcano looks, or how venous the lava flows, it is advisable to keep a healthy distance when it erupts. Same with people.
I am thankful for the people that have helped me transform from an active volcano to a dormant volcano.
