What Are The Tools?
These are do-it-yourself tools, and you probably already have everything you need to get started. This costs nothing, but it does ask something from you.
Your time, commitment and focus is required to make these tools work. Let's take a look at what they are:
- Find out where you are with your anger. Take one of our anger management tests to get started.
- Then it's a good idea to find out where your anger comes from. There is pain, sorrow and fear underlying your anger, and you need to know the story behind that. This trauma writing exercise will help you with that part.
- Then you need to honor your anger, by giving it a safe, healthy place to be. This anger journaling process gives you exactly that opportunity.
- Then it's time for emotional healing of the wounds underlying your anger. These imagery processes are designed to help you do that emotional healing.
- Last but not least, it's time to begin building a positive attitude about yourself and the world around you. The Goodfinding journaling exercise will guide you through the steps to make that happen.
Those are the tools. Sound easy? In some ways yes, and in some ways, no.
It's easier than continuing to struggle with anger, depression and bad relationships the rest of your life, but it does take some consistent, focused effort on your part.
Now let's look at how to use those tools to your best possible benefit.
How To Use The Tools So They Really Work
Good for you for reading to this point! That tells me that you might be focused and motivated enough to use these free tools for healing anger successfully.
Here are some things you can do to make sure you get the most possible benefit from the tools:
- When you take the anger test, or the anger management assessment, pay attention to all of the possible responses to each question. That will give you even more benefit. See if you can figure out which response is healthy, which is more severe, and which is extreme, etc.
- When you write your "trauma story," take it seriously. Spend some time on it. Then take a few days break and come back to it. You'll have a different feeling, and you may be willing to go to a deeper level. Watch out for attempts to minimize what happened to you, or to protect parents or caregivers who neglected, abused or abandoned you. It's not about them, after all, it's about what happened to you and how it affected you.
- In your anger journaling, don't hold back. Let it all come out, and keep writing until you feel you've gotten to the bottom of your anger. Ideally, you will get bored with the angry part of your mind--it's really not that smart. Then you're ready to move on to the next step.
- In your healing imagery process, be sure and find a relaxing, quiet, private situation for the exercise. Make your best effort to visualize the wounded parts of yourself, and try to have compassion and empathy for your child self in your memories. This is an extremely powerful tool, but it takes a lot of practice to get the full benefit.
- In your Goodfinding journaling process, the main thing is to do it, and keep doing it, and don't stop. The more you do it, the better you will feel, and the more deeply you will go into your gratitude, appreciation and optimism. Watch this video to learn more.
Remember, these are all free, do-it-yourself tools. This may or may not work for you, depending on how serious your issues are.
It is definitely worth a try, though! And, you're worth it!
