"To be a soulful person means to go against all the pervasive, prove-yourself values of our culture and instead treasure what is unique and internal and valuable in yourself and your own personal evolution." by Jean Shinoda Bolen via Toko-pa Turner
Outrage is part of our healing.
Don't let anyone try to shuffle you away from your anger.
Anger is a wise, cleansing force alerting you to the truth of your worth and to the truth within you.
It's a necessary step in recovering from being violated, personally and collectively.
Don't rush out of your outrage, listen to it and harness it as fuel for wise, informed action on your own behalf. Your anger is part of your power.
Do what so few dare to do: Give your anger a safe, empathic space to be fully, completely felt. Harness it, listen to it.
To the degree that you allow yourself to do so, is the degree to which you can increasingly own your power without apology.
Anger has so many gifts. Not indiscriminate, projected anger, but the energy of outrage, felt and placed where it truly belongs. Anger has an inner alchemy that heals and isn't contingent on external validation.

“Perhaps one of the most potent forms of revolution is caring for each other. Reciprocal caring in family, community, and biosphere simultaneously allows for the vital connective tissues to form that hold us within the larger ecology. Systems hold-back: that habit of not giving what I could give because I do not believe that others will give what they could give, is resulting in collective de-vitalized, individuated lifelessness, and violent competition... But caring, the most daring move now, changes the aesthetic of interaction. How much care and tenderness within and between each person in community is possible to give? Perhaps there is another order of what we might call "health"-- mental, physical, emotional, ecological. My health is my family's health is my community's health is the health of the biosphere. No hold backs.” - @Nora Bateson
