In yesterday’s post I explained that expressing your anger is healthy. There is nothing wrong with getting angry; we all do it and it is a normal occurrence in our human lives.
Acknowledging your feelings and expressing them without feeling guilty about them and without blame is what allows you to move past them.
Bu what happens when you feel that you cannot let go of your anger?
HOW LONG do you intend to stay angry for?
Remember the 90 Second Rule? That is all the time that your body needs to feel, process and let go of anger. If you are still angry days, weeks, months or even years after the events causing your anger ended, you are doing so by choice.
Yes, you read it right: by choice. You are choosing to remain angry. Read about the 90 Second Rule again.
Anger stays alive when it is linked to blame. You are angry because you are blaming someone for your pain. You are caught in a vicious cycle and there are two options: you are angry with somebody else OR you are angry with yourself.
So which one is it? Somebody else or yourself?
Tune in, feel your anger and determine who are you really angry with.
Then come back tomorrow and let’s explore your findings.
