There is some stuff on whether expressing or venting anger helps or whether it rekindles it or keeps it alive or keeps it going.

I'm not sure. Sometimes physical activity like punching or kicking or whatever can take some of the intensity out of the emotion. Which can feel healing. But othertimes it can really set it into a resolve. Sort of solidify or even magnify it or keep it going or keep it alive.

I think about Dexter... How he was trained to murder the murderers. There was a novel. I don't remember what it was called. Yes, I do. A Philosophical Investigation. It was again the trope of the murderer going after the murderers and the rapists and so on who were not punished by law.

I don't know if doling out that kind of vengance would be healing or whether it would keep the negative emotions alive. Don't know.
