Is anger ruining your relationships?
Most of us aren't taught how to handle anger. And especially if you grew up with raging adults, you can form patterns that are hard to break.
As women, we're taught that anger isn't attractive, so many of us suppress it. But stuffing your emotions causes a lot of stress and resentment, and over time that anger leaks out and hurts the ones you love.
As a man, maybe anger was role-modeled as abuse. You didn't learn how to express it without being scary. Yelling at your partner, name-calling, throwing things happen when emotions get out of control. Then comes the feeling of regret and shame.
Anger is Natural, But Can Be Destructive
Anger is a natural emotion indicating that something isn't working. You don't have to be embarrassed if you're having trouble managing anger. Be gentle on yourself.
But if your reactions are getting worse and causing problems in your relationships, it's time to get help.
Hoping your reactions will go away doesn't work. Instead, that anger comes out when you least expect it. This can lead to abusive behaviors that destroy trust like:
Putting others down to feel better
Blocking your partner from leaving
Controlling others with intimidation
Blaming your partner
Giving the silent treatment
Anger impacts how you feel about yourself. If you're looking for a way to stop, I can help. You can change.
