Staying angry is rarely necessary. Read that again. Being upset is one thing—perfectly okay and normal. Staying angry? Now, that’s no fun. It’s in how we choose to deal with our anger that can make all the difference. If treated with compassion, insight, and understanding, being angry may serve us well to incite breakthrough.

It is not the anger itself that causes breakthrough, but instead, the need for evolution that comes with surviving uncomfortable feelings. If we can learn to treat our anger as a learning experience, we can avoid cutting additional losses after being provoked. Try practicing this by repeating these affirmations when angry. 

 

1 of

To Add the Perspective of Time 

Sometimes all we need is a gentle reminder that we choose how to spend our own time, regardless of what upsets us. 

2 of

To Protect Your Inner Self While Angry 

We only get one inner self, and guess what? It's paying attention right now. Are you being careful with how you treat it? Anger is hard enough, make things easier on yourself by giving yourself the love you should be receiving. 

3 of

To Let Love Lead the Way Away from Anger 

How many times have you regretted responding with love? Anyone or anything that makes you feel bad for being vulnerable and choosing a loving way of being instead of anger probably isn't meant for you anyway. 

4 of

To Attract Positivity Like a Honey Bee 

What's bigger than being mad? The power of positivity. Drop anger and watch positivity gravitate toward you. 

5 of

For the Will to Keep on Trying 

Getting upset is never fun, and trying to shake it can sometimes feel like pulling teeth. Assure yourself that this type of practice and skill becomes refined the more you do it. 

6 of

To Prevent Long-Term Harboring of Anger 

Do you, too, cringe at the word "baggage"? Set those bags on the revolving baggage claim to nowhere. You have no reason or obligation to hold onto unpleasant feelings. They only have power over you if you give in to them. Avoid holding it over your own and other's heads by releasing it.

For Letting Go of Disappointing Expectations

Dropping expectations and visions of what you would like to happen in comparison to reality is one of the fastest tracks to feeling better after being angry.

8 of

Because Patience is the Antidote to Anger

Patience is the way. Limit your anger all together and learn to kick it quicker by keeping an open mind, each day. In an open mind, there is space. Space to mess up, space to grow, and space waiting to be cleared if you let go.
