Creating a Healthy Relationship with Anger
I have a rather odd passion and complex relationship with the world's most unsavory emotion, Anger. Ever since I was a little girl, I denied my anger because I deemed it to be wrong, ugly and bad. It wasn't until my early 30's that I finally started to create a healthy relationship with this fiery emotion... and, it is no exaggeration to say that this relationship has completely and utterly changed my life. That is why I am currently writing a book on the topic. ;)
The essence of anger is: Power. Inner fire. Boundary. Clear seeing—cutting through illusion. The ability to protect or fiercely protect self, others, beliefs, values, and that which we most love. The calling out of injustice, prejudice, and gaps in integrity. The intuition that something is off—something is hidden, disguised or harmful. The will to take action. In my experience, anger can often be confused for its close cousins: Rage, Aggression, Hate, and Violence. But they are not the same thing, instead they are avenues we channel our anger into. Creating a healthy relationship with our anger empowers us to see clearly, glean the wisdom it offers us, and take substantial and aligned action.
