OMG! I just saw a post about myself that made me laugh. Someone said that they didn’t think I (meaning me), would wipe the “smug smile off my face”. They are absolutely right . I’m so amazingly joyful and fulfilled in my life and they are just simply angry. The post went on to say negative things that aren’t true about me but make these people feel good. What I say to that… If I can make you feel better about yourself then I’ve made a difference in your life, if you feel you have a purpose because of me, even if your purpose is me then you are welcome.
Anger is a negative drain on your financial future and surfaces from the emotion of hurt. Ask yourself what is hurting you, how can you heal this pain so you can open the channel to receive wealth. Some people think that anger is because others have done something to them and rarely do they recognize this emotion is not about the other person.
I’m attaching a great article on Anger that says it all.
Here is a passage from the article:
a good deal of our anger is motivated by a desire not to experience guilt—and beyond this, the distressing emotions of hurt and fear. It’s by now generally agreed upon that anger, as prevalent as it is in our species, is almost never a primary emotion. For underlying it (as fellow blogger Steven Stosny(link is external) pointed out two decades ago) are such core hurts as feeling disregarded, unimportant, accused, guilty, untrustworthy, devalued, rejected, powerless, and unlovable. And these feelings are capable of engendering considerable emotional pain. It’s therefore understandable that so many of us might go to great lengths to find ways of distancing ourselves from them.
In fact, those of us who routinely use anger as a “cover-up” to keep our more vulnerable feelings at bay, generally become so adept at doing so that we have little to no awareness of the dynamic driving our behavior. As I’ve discussed in earlier posts on the subject, anger is the emotion of invulnerability. Even though the self-empowerment (read, “adrenaline rush”) it immediately offers is bogus, it can yet be extremely tempting to get “attached”—or even “addicted”—to it if we frequently experience another as threatening the way we need to see ourselves (e.g., as important, trustworthy, lovable, etc.).
After all, this is how all psychological defenses work. Simply put, they allow us to escape upsetting, shameful, or anxiety-laden feelings we may not have developed the emotional resources—or ego strength—to successfully cope with.
I hope you will read the article it is a great insight to personal emotions and the beginning of understanding why people express their feelings as anger. Bottom line… the people who are angry with you more than likely miss you and wish they would have gotten something from you that you could not or would not give them. Think about this !
