* Are you a nice person who never gets angry at others?
* Do you “blow up” at other drivers on the road for small things?
* Is your temper explosive in relation to the triggering event?
These are just a few examples of how anger might be an emotional terrorist in your life because you aren’t in conscious choice about expressing it. More importantly, it could be blocking you from receiving your life wealth.
Anger is an emotion that is considered inappropriate for children to express and, over time, children learn to suppress it. They learn to focus on being nice to the point where people wouldn’t suspect that they had any anger at all. If this is you, you’ve likely even forgotten your anger, much less how to express it.
You might find yourself a little frustrated by waiting in line at the store, or think negative thoughts but you would never say them. In fact, it’s only when you drive that you allow yourself to swear at people who cut you off. When someone you love doesn’t understand you, and you get into an argument, you find it escalates pretty quickly but you shrug it off as a small frustration or because the other person has issues. Little things might bug you, like not being able to find stamps when you want to mail bills or your keys when you’re walking out the door, but that’s what happens for everybody, right?
Generally speaking, we aren’t designed to be consistently angry. Anger is a powerful generative emotion that lets us know it’s time to honor ourselves in a different way. When we feel it, process it and release it constructively, it can become a powerful messenger alerting us to the fastest path to our life wealth. When we express our anger constructively, we are actually protecting the people around us from hidden anger and fostering authentic communication. The people in our world want us to be happy, and anger can be the guide to create more happiness which, ultimately, leads to greater life wealth.
So, your hidden or repressed anger may be the terrorist lurking outside your proverbial front door, just waiting to pounce on anything coming or going, even if it’s something you want (like wealth). In order to experience greater life wealth, it’s vital to handle the anger that could be your hidden terrorist. Isn’t it time to take back the access to your life wealth?
