Rage is a secondary emotion, arising from say feeling hurt, betrayed, used etc… There is a thought or thoughts or belief that you have that are causing you to feel hurt, or betrayed.
In this episode, I talk about the possible causes of rage and how to process and embrace it, so you don't become paralyzed by it.
Rage just doesn’t happen, it comes from thoughts, sometimes the thought or thoughts maybe a little hard to spot, flying under the radar but believe me they are.
Be willing to open up instead of resisting and closing. If we resist the pain, we make it so much worse. Accepting pain, feeling sad, helps us process whatever is going on better.
Name the emotion, hand on heart, stomach, Breath through it. Nothing has gone here, even though I am feeling this way.
I am angry and scared that my spouse is going through cancer treatments, I am terrified he may not make it. This is a part of being human. I am letting it go through my body. The emotion will rise and rise again, keep breathing and describing what is going on in your body.
This could go on for months, I can handle this today, I don’t know about tomorrow……. I will take it from there.
