ANGER ON MY MIND

Anger management connected to values and beliefs

Posted on: December 3, 2007

Did you know that our values and beliefs can often fuel our anger towards others? If we value time management, organization, hard work, serenity etc our minds are always seeking to create an environment in which these values are fostered. Unfortunately because  the world does not revolve around the individual, learning to live with others who do not subscribe to our values is an important key to reducing chronic and explosive anger.

Each individual needs to have a mental inventory of what he or she values. This awareness will help the individual have clarity about what drives them so that in situations where their anger begins to emerge because of a strongly held value they can remind themselves that this belief may be mine but not theirs. Such a mindset can promote dialogue and reduce conflict.

The starting point in not allowing our values and beliefs to create explosive anger is to know what we believe. Do you know what you believe?
