If you regularly read my newsletters and blogs you will know of my fascination with the type of person whom I loosely refer to as 'the creative mind', and my curiosity at how to better nurture this type of person.
This is not necessarily and artist or performer, but also the sort of person who feels passionately, can think 'out-of-the-box' and for whom meaning and justice are key. Strong feelings can be blissful, but they can also lead to destructive behaviour and inaccurate thinking.
Discover Practical Ways to Deal with Anger
In my recent conversation with Catherine Robson about anger and the creative mind, we explored many components of anger: where it comes from, unexpected ways that it can manifest itself, the way it distorts perception and covers up 'fault lines' from our past and much more.
We also discussed lots of practical ways to deal with inappropriate expressions of anger – and it's this part of our conversation that I'd like to share with you!
Just a cautionary note here, please! Before you decide to listen, remind yourself that dealing with anger requires courage, because under its hard feelings and hard-bitten inclination, sit softer and more vulnerable feelings and they can be very scary to face up to.
If you enjoyed this extract of our conversation, then you'll find much more in 'A Guide to Understanding Anger' in which I explore why and how anger can manifest in our lives – as well as further practical ways to deal with excessive anger and a guided meditation to help you break old, unhelpful patterns.
