Conflict and Anger Management

Anger and conflict often affect our relationships with others. I teach you that anger is a secondary emotion often triggered by conflict that overshadows more primary emotions such as hurt, insecurity, and feelings of inadequacy and worthlessness.

When this distinction between the secondary and primary emotions is understood, you are more willing to acknowledge your vulnerabilities. This willingness to be vulnerable engenders compassion which is an antidote to anger.

It is compassion that allows you to hear what those with whom you are in conflict are saying, so that you can find ways to reduce judgement and blame and manage the tensions within your relationships.
