A few words about the formula
Unfortunately there are children who received incessant mental and emotional or even physical abuse from family members. Then the victim turns out to become the aggressor when they are out in a community. A bullying child is often the bullied child at home. As a grown up, an adult children may succeed in competitive world but still suffers from unhealthy relationship.
The Metal element’s central lesson is to let go and move on, but in this situation one must first learn to hold up the hand and say “no, I do not find it pleasurable” The aggressivity can be an asset when directed in the right direction.
