Anger For Empaths – 4 Steps To Positive Change
Anger For Empaths
Are you an empath who has a hard time with anger?
Oftentimes, sensitive souls can forgive people without actually processing how you feel. You can try to see the higher good in all situations without letting your human self integrate your emotions.
Allow yourself to feel all the feelings you think “spiritual people” aren’t allowed to express (or even experience).
Anger can be righteous.
It’s here to help you understand that you deserve better. Your loved ones deserve better. The world deserves better.
Give yourself permission to be completely human. Not superhuman, or "spiritual" human. Have an entire range of feelings. It will be liberating!
4 Steps To Fuel The Flames For Positive Change:
Have better boundaries
It’s natural for people to feel enraged if people are violating or intruding on your personal space. In fact, it is a healthy response. Notice your anger when someone intrudes upon your boundaries. It’s a sign to shore up your energetic, physical and emotional space in all areas of your life. Take a look at how you let people get away with things because you don’t think it’s worth the effort to say or do something in your defense.
Know you deserve better
Mistreatment or disrespect can cause anger. So, if you feel angry, this may be a clue that one of these things has happened in some way. Even though there might be a certain situation that triggered that response from you, most likely there are the areas of your life where you devalue yourself or don’t give yourself enough credit. Use these emotions to fuel you into feeling better about yourself and knowing your worth, so you will attract people who treat you with respect.
Rise and stand up for what you believe
Perhaps it is the injustices of the world, or something that happened to you personally that triggered the “last straw”. If you tend toward avoiding conflict (as most empaths do), it’s likely you give people the benefit of the doubt way too often and avoid conflict at any cost. Anger might be what it takes to get the fire beneath your feet to finally not care what people think, so you can be yourself and do what’s in your heart.
Anger is a fiery emotion. It can fuel you to take daring and direct action that you might normally be afraid of. If your passions and creativity have been quelled because you’ve been living the status quo, your anger might just be what sparks the necessary motivation in you to change.
As you can see (and feel), anger can have a positive purpose.
You certainly don’t want to stay anger or simmer in it. Yet, when you channel your emotions with intention, it can fuel you toward changes you might otherwise be afraid to make.
You are a glorious human with a range of emotions. Enjoy the fullness of your being.
