Anger is an essential emotion
Anger has a terrible reputation, because so many people use anger to hurt themselves or others. But this isn’t anger’s fault! This is not anger’s true nature.
The true purpose of anger is to help you develop boundaries, healthy and well-defined relationships, vulnerability, and the ability to love.
Anger is an essential emotion that helps you in every area of your life, and when you know what anger is and how to work with it, you can change your life.
Your anger helps you identify what’s important to you, it helps you set clear boundaries, and it helps you access the strength you need to be vulnerable. Your relationships can’t thrive without healthy anger.
However, very few of us have been taught to view anger in this way (or to work with it at all).
Learning to work with anger — instead of repressing the life out of it or exploding outward with it — is one of the most important skills you can learn.
Your anger can be a gift to you and to everyone you know.
