Anger. We all feel it, and for most of us, it’s an uncomfortable feeling. Unfortunately, we can’t just lash out every time we feel angry and call this healthy necessarily. We have found that one of the most dangerous places for anger to surface is in our intimate relationships. We can cause a lot of harm very quickly when rage is behind the wheel.
According to a recent article at SpiritualityHealth.com, anger often manifests itself because a boundary has been broken or some need is not being met. Anger is our body’s way of protecting us from harm, both psychological and physical. So, how do we navigate it without destroying our relationships?
We must first take a step back, breathe, and slow down the situation. Here, we can explore the emotion and find the root of the troubles without first causing more harm to our significant others. It is important to note that anger sometimes masks other underlying emotions such as fear and grief. In these cases, it's important to address the fear and grief with the help of a healing professional, if needed.
Anger can also be channeled into a passionate conversation, a conversation that your relationship might dearly need. There are other ways we can safely process anger such as in psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, meditation, at the gym, or even in a yoga class.
