We tend to think of anger as a destructive force and something to be ashamed of and something to be suppressed. Think of anger as the fire element within us. Fire can be destructive and can cause a lot of damage but it is also something that provides us with warmth and nourishing food.
Anger is an expression of passion for life and living. Anger helps us set healthy boundaries and can be a protective force. If we listen to our insides in time anger can be a good friend to us.
Use your anger to fuel your passion, to get that adrenaline pumping, to get things moving. Use your anger to understand yourself better and to figure out what is behind the anger. Use your anger to respect yourself and set the right boundaries. Use your anger to free yourself from where you feel bound. Use your anger like kindling to energise yourself. And maybe use the healing power of anger to burn off what doesn’t serve you.
If you were angry and are going through some self chastisement and guilt, let that go. You are only human and all of us feel angry and it is healthy to give into that anger every now and then. If it was uncontrolled then all you need to know is that there was so much suppressed that it needed to burst out. Learn from that and release in healthy doses in the future. You don’t need to confront anyone or shout at anyone, you just need to let it out – maybe on a pillow or a punching bag. Or maybe channel it in some productive activity.
Embrace your anger today ❤️
