ANGER ON MY MIND

Never listen to your angry self talk

Posted on: October 28, 2007

There is a hidden danger in listening to your self when you are angry. Remember your angry self talk is self serving. It is not concerned about others, all it wants is to protect itself. So for all intents and purposes you are right and the rest of the world is wrong. The danger is that angry self talk often cannot past the test of what is reality. Anger’s interest is not in being truthful, it is in being right. Therefore the next time you experienced anger self talk be very quick to tell yourself-I know that my thoughts are not very realistic right now so maybe I need to remove myself from this situation so that I can have some time to engage in more positive self talk.

Excellent article Carlos,

As anger management specialists we know negative self talk is the foundation of stress, and stress is one of those primary emotions most people experience just prior an anger incident.
