Are You An Angry Woman?

Well, first of all, there's nothing wrong with you just because you're angry. As a matter of fact, you have good reasons to be angry--the important thing is what you do with your anger!

If you vent it in destructive ways, you hurt others and yourself. And, if you just stuff it, you hurt yourself most of all. The point here is to express your anger in healthy ways, so it doesn't hurt you or anyone else.

But first, let's look at some of the reasons you might be an angry woman:

  • You may have been abused, violated, neglected or abandoned--or a combination of those.
  • The males in your family may have been favored over you, giving you the impression that you were a "second-class citizen" or less valuable just because you're female.
  • You may have been a victim of sexual harassment or gender bias, receiving bad treatment specifically because of your gender.
  • Or, you may have simply had negative role models, either setting a bad example with their own anger, or by treating you poorly.
