Anger has been given a bad rap. For those of us who have grown up in a religiously tinged society, we have learned to perceive anger as something of disrepute; something to be avoided; something sinful; even something dangerous. Anger has traditionally been equated with the devil – with wrath.
What are your attitudes about anger?
What are your conditioned beliefs about anger?
How do you relate to anger? Do you cower in its presence? Do you shy away from it? Do you jump in when it is present, stoking its fire?
Do you actively seek opportunities to light the fire of anger – to provoke it? Do you feed off of other people’s anger? Does anger give you a sense of strength, of power over others? Do you like the tough persona that anger lends to you?
All emotions are neutral energy.
They are neither good nor bad.
