D.I.Y. Therapy: Angry Words in Relationships

Have you ever been so angry that you said something you didn’t mean or exaggerated an emotion to feel vindicated?  I certainly have and always with regret. Sometimes in the heat of the moment we do reveal truths which are telling signs that a person is dangerous, but depending on our personality we just as often say the first nasty thought that arrives. I did that more often when I was younger, usually fighting with my siblings or friends. It was a hard written habit to break, but I’ve since learned getting angry doesn’t solve relationship issues. Anger is a great tool in self defense, but should not be used to win every disagreement or a reaction to every offense.

If you crave healthier relationships then you must be open to learning new ways to be emotionally healthy.  Check out this post “Two Powerful Relationship Practices” by Kristen Barton Cuthriell to continue your inner growth.
