1. Someone tells a demeaning joke, and you feel your skin crawl. Someone speeds through a stoplight, nearly missing a child, and you get angry. That’s a sign that a boundary has been crossed for you. Something important to you has been threatened, disregarded, or mocked.
2. Learn to communicate assertively as this is one of the most important tools for expressing your anger in a healthy way. Share more openly your requests, your boundaries and your opinions with others.
3. do you react in situation rather than think it through?
someone calls you an inconsiderate idiot and you feel angry.
someone cuts in front of you on the freeway and you feel angry.
someone attacks your friend and you feel angry.
someone tells you that you will not get the pay increase that you think you deserve, and you feel angry.
What causes you to feel anger? what do all of the situations have in common?
4. I am not okay with you discussing our private matters with family member/friend. Please respect my privacy.
