"YOUR MIND IS LIKE WATER. WHEN IT IS AGITATED, IT BECOMES DIFFICULT TO SEE, BUT WHEN YOU LET IT SETTLE, THE ANSWER BECOMES CLEAR."
- OOGWAY (FROM KUNG FU PANDA)
Men, let's get a couple of things clear.
Anger is not a personality or character trait.
It is also not a diagnosis.
Anger is something you FEEL, because good news:
You're a human being with, guess what - EMOTIONS!
This is why spending all of your energy trying to control your anger or manage it or just trying to not be angry doesn't work, because emotions don't work that way.
Once you feel something, it's there. You have to take the time to process and understand why you feel that way. That's the only way you can get rid of or take care of a feeling. There's no other way around it.
Hi, I'm Dr. Elena Kim, and I am a therapist who specializes in emotions, especially the difficult ones, such as anger.
There is a more compassionate way of dealing with your anger.
Lean into it and let it speak to you.
There's wisdom in your emotions. They're trying to teach you something.
The only way you can learn from them is to be open and curious about them.
Once you see what's underneath your anger, you just may realize that you're not angry at all!
You may realize that you're just a regular human being with feelings and emotions that all humans have.
Are you ready for that? Do you want to see yourself like that?
I hope your answer is yes, because it's easier to deal with anger before it turns into depression, bitterness, resentment, and rage.
