Anger Help, OK lets investigate why you believe you need it.
What is anger?
It is a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility.
Some of the cause would be stress, financial hardship, Difficult family or personal relationships, abuse: physical, mental or sexual and lets not forget substance abuse.
John Bradshaw has written many books on family dysfunction. I know from personal experience that low self esteem and how we grow up including all the environments we have been subjected to leads to many of the feelings and situations we find ourselves in when we reach adulthood.
Shame exists in everyday life. It influences our interpersonal relationships and affects how we think and behave. Feelings of shame come through self reflection. It is when one compares an action they have taken against some standard, either one’s own or someone else’s. It is a very powerful master emotion that deserves study. Shame, guilt and pride are secondary emotions to primary emotions like joy, sadness, anger, disgust, interest, and fear. Secondary emotions begin in the subconscious. To experience shame depends on whether or not one focuses attention on their emotional state. Prolonged feelings of shame may turn into humiliation, depression, and rage.
Let us continue to learn about ourselves emotionally and mentally so that we can continue on our spiritual journey. Without knowing who we are, how can we expect to grow healthier for our family, friends and jobs.
Louise Hay, One of my Mentors and favorite Authors Says This about Anger: "Fear is becoming rampant on the planet. We can see it every day in the news. Fear is a lack of trust in ourselves, and because of this, we don’t trust Life. We don’t trust that we’re being taken care of on a higher level, so we feel we must control everything from the physical level. Obviously, we’re going to feel fear because we can’t control everything in our lives.
Trust is what we learn when we want to overcome our fears. It’s called “taking a leap of faith” and trusting in the Power within that’s connected to Universal Intelligence. Remember, the Power that supplies our breath is the same Power that created the Universe.
You’re one with all of Life. The more you know how to love yourself and trust Life, the more that Life will love you, support you, and guide you. You can trust in that which is invisible, instead of trusting only in the physical, material world. I’m not saying that we do nothing, yet if we have trust, we can go through life much easier. We need to trust that we’re being taken care of, even though we’re not physically in control of everything that’s happening around us."
