When others speak while angry you might have a hard time hearing them, even though they really want to be heard. The same is true when you speak while angry – it almost certainly means that you’ll experience less connection, more conflict, and the frustration of knowing that the way you’re communicating is really unlikely to lead to the kind of outcome you want. If I speak while angry I’ll probably end up even more angry about how effective my communication is!
In this series we’ll practice ways to make it easier to listen and stay connected, even when there is a lot of anger. We’ll also practice methods of self-connection and self-understanding that help you figure out the true message of your own anger and that of others, and to extract meaning and direction from even the most painful judgments. Get the true message of anger and I predict you’ll find it comes back less often. We’ll also look at ways to express anger when it arises rather than stuffing it inside.Find out more »
