Has anyone here ever felt they are a "meanie"??? Yesterday someone told me that someone I had as a teacher and disliked intensely had been promoted to a much better job. I'm so steamed over it. She made a BIG negative impresssion on me in my teen years. I was turned off of frumkeit for many years in part (not entirely) due to that person. Then I heard about someone I grew up with who was really an especially nice kid and he is having it rough with some of his kids. I couldn''t help but scream at the person telling me this, "WHY DID SHE HAVE TO GET AHEAD AND HE'S STILL A TEACHER???" I was so steamed for the rest of the day. The person telling me this DID say that the kid I grew up with is a treasured teacher in the school which made me feel better. But, really??? I guess only Hashem knows what is best for us, but it's painful to see mean ppl, get ahead. Even more painful to know that I MYSELF am a meanie for wishing ill on the woman involved. Dunno what to say.

Many Poskim maintain that feeling angry is ok as long as you don't act on it. The feeling itself is ok I don't blame you for it....
There is a good reason for the anger as you yourself described!

I hope you'll feel great!

Thanks Momo....you actually made me feel a lot better. When I was a kid I was told anger is akin to not believing in Hashem. Because if you are angry at someone then you are denying htat Hashem has a master plan and that it will all work out. Never heard the flip side....Made me feel better.
