The dilemma of living a creative expressive life while releasing emotions in safe environments and with safe people.
In the post, I will discuss why expressing anger is a good thing But Reacting From Anger is Not.
4 Ways to Express Anger in a Safe Way
Express anger by scribbling on paper until the pen goes through
Talk to a safe friend
Classic scream into a pillow (never to be underestimated)
Write what you are angry about – stream of consciousness – don’t stop – it surprisingly clears up that built up energy
All emotions are valid. You don’t have control of the emotions that come up in you.
The element of control is in saying, ” I’m hurt, but I’m choosing not to play this game [of throwing unkind words, belitting] because it doesn’t serve me.”
Keeping it bottled up doesn’t serve you either.
