  • Do you explode with anger at times and regret it later?
  • Do you feel irritated and aggravated for no apparent reason?
  • Do you suppress your anger because you feel that you may hurt someone close to you, jeopardize your job or your marriage?

If so, you need to learn to make friends with your anger and to express it in healthy ways instead of letting anger make a victim out of you. Anger is not the bad guy, aggression is. Anger is a feeling that arises when our safety is threatened, it is an emotional force field that responds to buried fear and pain.

Bill DeFoore suggests that we learn the healthy power of anger - that anger can be the strength to break free from your feelings of helplessness and powerlessness.

Learn to love and appreciate yourself and to become empowered by this self-love through the release of healthy anger.
