Anger is the most destructive of emotions resulting in failed relationships, loss of employment, depression, self-hatred and even heart problems and physical decline. When working with our anger we have to first learn how to tolerate difficult thoughts and emotions so that we don’t feel the need to react every time we get triggered. This is done by practicing breathing, relaxation and different types of meditation in a controlled environment so that when anger comes up we have some effective resources. Next we have to challenge our thoughts, beliefs and triggers that make us angry to being with and finally learn how to directly work with our anger energy so that we may focus it towards more constructive endeavors. Underneath anger there is typically a lot of pain and suffering so we must proceed with the utmost compassion and understanding to support real growth and change.
