WHEN IS ANGER ABOUT LOVE AND SELF-RESPECT? Contact us 310-543-1824
Anger can be a sign of love, oddly. Love for yourself and love of others can make you want to be protective and defend those whom you are loving. If you feel like a victim or are being abused and want to stand up for yourself, anger can often motivate the energy it will take to protect yourself. Recognizing that you are angry because you are wishing to be loved, wishing to be protective or helpful, or feeling there is an injustice happening, is helpful because you can use your anger to create very positive results.
SOME TIMES WE GET ANGRY BUT WE ACTUALLY ARE MISUNDERSTANDING SOMEONE'S WORDS or ACTIONS Contact us 310-543-1824
Sometimes at work or in relationships, people feel hurt or attacked. Often the hurt and attacked feelings can be a definite misinterpretation of another person's actions or words We can easily misunderstand other people. We can easily jump to a wrong conclusion that someone is insulting us if they are joking, being sarcastically playful, or using language we don't typically use unless we are angry.
So we can be angry or be offended when the other person has no intention of hurting us nor offending us. At these times, life coaching skills are really helpful to relationships of all sorts. These skills include some of the following: empathy training, problem-solving techniques, self-disclosure training, "not-taking-it-personally" training and other tools.
ANGRY ACTIONS AND WORDS ARE DESTRUCTIVE - NEVER DOUBT THIS! Contact 310-543-1824
On the other hand, anger can lead to all sorts of violence which is destructive and counter-productive almost all the time. So being angry out of self-love or loving someone else is different than converting anger into hurtful words or actions. Sometimes retaliation feels good but it is always ultimately destructive and inflaming to any situation and does not lead to anything of any merit. Angry words and actions ALWAYS makes things worse. Anger that produces violent or hurtful or abusive words, actions or decisions is never helpful to anyone regardless of the cause of anger.
