The words we use when we're feeling our emotions can either empower us or they can bury us.
Yes...anger is an emotion...and not a comfortable one.
How do you handle it?...or does your anger handle you?
How does your body feel when you're angry? Do you feel hot? Is your heart pounding? Do you feel scared? Give thought to how your body responds to this emotion.
When you're feeling angry...would you say you're thinking or reacting? If you're like most people you react first and think after. Now I'm not saying you respond this way all the time...but it happens...doesn't it?
What words do you use when you're feeling angry? How do you talk to you? How do you talk to others?
If your anger does get the better of you...I hope you're big enough to acknowledge that and to apologize when you need to. Losing ourselves to our emotions happens and we need to take responsibility when it does....but keep in mind too that it doesn't make you any less of a person for it happening. OKAY?!?!
Life happens and sometimes it pisses us off...let's be honest okay? Life isn't always a bed a roses and we're often pricked by its thorns...BUT...we can learn to handle the emotions that come with life and we can learn to handle our anger in a better way.
We're human...which means we will feel all the emotions that come with being human...and anger is one of them. Learning how to positively talk to ourselves as we experience our emotions will help us to manage them better.
take good care of you
