Dr. DeFoore's Healing Anger Newsletter entitled "Is Anger Bad?"
October 15, 2016
Is Anger Bad?
"When anger is good, and operating the way it's supposed to, it fuels powerful, effective action that contributes to your safety, happiness and success."
You might be surprised to know that many of the greatest things ever done in human history came from someone feeling a deep and powerful anger against injustice or oppression. Think of the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the Anti-Apartheid Movement and the abolishment of slavery in the U.S.
Think of what bothers you, threatens you, or gets in your way the most. You can apply your healthy anger toward finding solutions and moving past those barriers to what you want.
When your anger is working right, it fires you up in positive, constructive directions. Think of MADD -- Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. They got mad, and they got busy making things better for all of us.
A lot of folks feel like a victim to their anger...but you're not a victim to any of your emotions. That's what this newsletter and our anger management resource web site is all about.
I know I promised last month that this issue would focus on how to show respect for other people's boundaries...that will definitely be the topic for the November issue.
This is very tricky...when anger is good, righteous and healthy, it doesn't look, sound or feel like anger at all.
Do you think those moms in MADD looked angry while they sat at those typewriters, writing their congressmen and congresswomen, taking action to form their organization to make our roads safe from drunk drivers? Probably not. But they were busy, and focused, and getting the job done.
Here are some steps you can take to make sure your anger is good and working for you:
You will need to feel like you're worthy of this effort...so be sure you learn to love yourself and take effective action on your own behalf.
You are worthy of love, and you are worthy of the life you choose. You're going to need the fuel of your healthy emotions to create it.
This highly effective audio program, available as a CD or MP3 download, will help you heal your anger and get it working for you instead of against you.
