Increase your self-esteem by asserting your anger (1 minute read)
This post “Increase your self-esteem by asserting your anger” continues with how you can increase your self-esteem by getting to know and manage your emotions.
Increase your self-esteem by asserting your anger:
Here is an example of how anger can be transformed into healthy self-assertion.
Examples of the 8 steps:
1 Note the anger: I notice that I am feeling uneasy
2 Name the anger: I am actually angry
3 Feel the anger in the body: I feel tense and I am clenching my fists
4 How strong is the anger: 6
5 Understand the reason: I am angry because they went behind my back
6 What does the anger spontaneously want you to do: I want to hit someone, but of course I do not intend to do that – it is just the anger’s spontaneous impulse to act
7 Understand if anger is a real feeling: I am understandably both angry and hurt for what they have done to me
8 Transform the anger into healthy self-assertion: I am angry that they let me down. I wonder if they understand how it feels. I will think about whether I want to confront them or just let it pass.
