Anger is an adaptive survival energy that has been part of our innate coping mechanisms as humans. If safely and properly channeled, it could be a potent force for change. For example, thousands of charitable causes have been established as a result of redirected anger for the common good. Likewise, millions of relationships have been salvaged because someone somehow refused to let the survival brain overpower the rational, relational and logical brain in the heat of the moment.
Although anger can be a powerful force for change, it can also be extremely destructive if handled wrongly and allowed to become toxic. Anger is a response of the survival brain; while love, compassion and patience flow from a well developed logical and creative mind. When vicious anger steps in, logic and rationality step out. Therefore, anger is energy that is meant not to be suppressed, but expressed and diffused safely and skilfully. In this short talk, I share four tips to managing anger on a daily basis and regaining your personal power that builds positive relationships and create a loving existence.
