There is appropriate anger and inappropriate anger.
Expressing outrage in a non-aggressive way is therapeutic and also informative to the other person.
Often, it’s inappropriate anger such as mirroring the same behavior and hurt to others that we are feeling that gets us nowhere.
Anger can be a great motivator.
When someone gets the promotion you deserve, defang your anger so that it motivates not hobbles you.
When someone you love chooses another, hurt and anger can be rechanneled to practice loving yourself more completely until the person meant for you comes along.
If someone bullies you, don’t become a bully copycat. Use that awful feeling to become a stronger person with more self-love.
Being the target of anger does not mean taking abuse of any kind.
Set clear boundaries and enforce them every time.
But the things that make us angry can also be great gifts if we see them in a different light and use our anger to overcome the hurt.
