Some people can be completely consumed by anger. It can paralyse them entirely from taking positive action and working on a goal that will help them out of the funk they are in. They prefer to wallow in the negativity and anger, happy in the narrative that they tell anyone who listens all about the wrongs that they have to endure.
Sure things can happen that gives you the right to be angry. But if you continue to stay inside that anger you will be unable to create a better life for yourself. One that brings you joy and purpose.
If others describe you as an angry person, or you can identify it within yourself – maybe it’s time to tackle the pain that is causing the anger. I am very pro-therapy. Being able to talk to someone who is completely detached from your life story can really help you deal with things that are holding you back from your potential.
Today I want you to take 10-15 minutes and write down a list of things that cause you anger. Some might be silly little grievances and that’s fine. They can be dealt with fairly easily and may just require some self reflection. But if there are other bigger issues that you find are causing you to experience anger for a significant amount of time – maybe start looking into having a few sessions of therapy. It might only take a session or two for you to start working through the pain so why suffer any longer?
