The emotion of anger is not always a negative feeling to experience. In fact, being
angry in some ways can be a positive outlet and something that should not be ignored.
However, having rage inside that results in harmful tendencies towards yourself or other people, and from which the source is painful experience, is not healthy at all. This type of anger should be dealt with before it escalates into more negative experiences.
Designed for your protection and safety, anger/rage is ultimately your friend and close. But until you can accept this kind of feeling as a part of your being, you will tend to be at war with the emotion of anger as well as yourself. You must first understand that anger is a protective emotion and then consider the ways in which anger can be useful and positive to you.
Because anger or rage springs immediately from pain and fear, and then ultimately love, you must be careful that this anger is not disconnected from other basic emotions. This is when it becomes dangerous. Once you overstep that boundary of caring for your feelings or the feelings of another person, your anger has the power to instill pain, either emotional or physical.
On the other hand, if you can connect love for every angry feeling you get, anger tends to dissolve and love and sense prevail. Below are four ways in which you can better
understand your anger:
1. Learn to recognize the relationship that exists between the emotions of anger, rage, fear, pain, and love. There is an inherent connection between all three and the mark of a healthy individual is one where that person can target the origin from which their emotions of anger and stemming from. Is it fear? Is it pain? Or is the root cause of the anger stemming from love?
2. Learn to identify the vast differences between the actions that are motivated by fear and the actions that are motivated by love. Again, this is very similar to number one above. Your goal should be to immediately identify your feelings of anger and the feelings of anger from other people and where they come from.
3. Understand that having courage is a result of the anger-love connection. Having courage to face a problem that has resulted from being anger with a loved one is a necessity in life, but only if that
