The Anger Iceberg

Updated: Oct 16, 2020

Anger is one of my favourite emotions to work with.


When we see anger in others, we often see it as rude, arrogant, & childish.


When we see anger in ourselves, we often see it as a flaw, an overreaction, & a source of shame.


But really, what's underneath it all? Why are so many of us so damn angry?



🌱SECONDARY EMOTIONS🌱

Anger is what I call a secondary emotion, meaning that it usually stems from another emotion under the surface. While we may see anger on the surface, it could merely be a form of protection from our fear, an outburst of agony from our sadness, or possibly the only way that we know how to communicate or get attention from others.


✨ Processing & Accepting Anger ✨

If you consider yourself an angry person or β€œhot-tempered,” you may doubt the benefits of exploring that anger or allowing it to exist. But on the contrary, understanding & accepting that emotion is an important pathway to overcoming it.
