"At the core of all anger is a need that is not being fulfilled."
~ Marshall B. Rosenberg ~
Anger indulged is limited in its effectiveness, though the sensation itself has a powerful purpose in our lives. It signals us that something is off- that our boundaries have been crossed or something hidden has been triggered and woken up.
Having a hissy fit or temper tantrum does not solve any problem, but acknowledging our hurt, or disappointment, or fear does. So let's feel our anger, but express it in a constructive way, with honesty and ownership, and a willingness to forgive where necessary and stand up where needed.
I appreciate my anger as a messenger that points to the need for honesty, courage, and steady resolve.
