Anger Cycle

“I hate my son.”

This was an actual statement said to me by a woman in one of my workshops. She said this with tears in her eyes. I could tell she did not want to feel this way and yet didn’t know where to go with this unwanted notion. I also knew that hate was not the root of her problem.

Have you ever said something so mean to your child (or to someone else) that you can hardly stand yourself afterward? Have you ever been brought painfully back to your senses by the look of fear or the tears of shock and sadness in your child’s eyes?

No one deserves this kind of treatment and no one deserves to live with the guilt of having behaved in this seemingly uncontrollable and baffling manner.  If you’ve ever lashed out verbally or physically in anger then today’s video is for you. I’m so glad you’re here.

In today’s TWT we’ll take a look at why we sometimes feel so mad, so angry, so outraged, so ballistic toward the people we love the most. You’ll gain an understanding of where these feelings come from and what to do with them so they don’t destroy your most precious relationships.

After you watch the video, this link will prove useful in articulating what you REALLY feel.
