Increase your self-esteem by handling anger (1 minute read)
This post “Increase your self-esteem by handling anger” continues with how you can increase your self-esteem by getting to know yourself.
Increase your self-esteem by handling anger:
Unheard emotions can lead to both physical and psychological symptoms. There are several emotions that we who work with psychological treatment often encounter problems with.
One of the most prominent is anger. Maybe this partly depends on cultural norms and thoughts of proper adult behaviour, that anger is only for children until old enough to control oneself.
Displays of anger in a threatening way and angry actions are also regulated in the law. No wonder it is avoided.
But there is a huge difference between hearing and feeling an emotion and acting out an emotion.
Next time you feel anger:
Observe the intensity of the feeling
Notice your impulse to react:
-what would you like to do towards whom
-what would you like to say to whom
Validate your reaction – why you are angry and towards whom: “I have the right to be angry because…”
Be wise: Then think about what is wise thing to do. If you are unsure = do not respond immediately. Just wait with reacting until you know what you would like to do. Most things can be brought up again afterwards.
