Increase your self-esteem by understanding your anger (1 minute read)
This post “Increase your self-esteem by understanding anger” continues with how you can increase your self-esteem by getting to know yourself.
Increase your self-esteem by understanding your anger:
As mentioned in the last post, it is not healthy to act out anger in a frightening way: That can be traumatising to watch for both children and adults. It can also be lethal for the angry person.
Research has found a connection between rage and heart attacks. Rage often precedes a heart attack and may even sometimes be the trigger, with a dangerous period of up to 2 hours after an outburst.
The urge to act out anger is less needed when we are adults since we from the mid-twenties have the mental capacity, not necessarily the ability – that has to be developed – to moderate feelings.
Hearing the emotion in itself, as in the exercise in the last post, moderates its intensity.
It is also important to understand why we have the feeling.
Next time you feel anger, ask yourself if you are proportionately angry or if it is a defense mechanism for hurt or fear?
