By now many know of the research at the University of Jena in Germany. It found, reports BUSINESS INSIDER, that those who let the anger rip are likely to live longer and not develop cancer and heart disease. Probably some of us have witnessed that phenomenon play out in our own familes. The repressed members tended to die younger than the expressive ones.
But, if we survey our professional lives we also note that those who mask anger are usually more successful than those who let it all out. Looking back to my college chums it's obvious that the diplomats made and kept together great marriages, rose beyond middle management in corporations, and ran enterprises which made it beyond micro.
Clearly, we have to choose between living healthy or living wealthy.
