Homework is “pick your level.”
|Excerpt from The Dance of Anger by Harriet Lerner
“Anger is a signal, and one worth listening to. Our anger may be a message that we are being hurt, that our rights are being violated, that our needs or wants are not being adequately met, or simply that something is not right.
Our anger may tell us that we are not addressing an important emotional issue in our lives, or that too much of our self – our beliefs, values, desires, or ambitions – is being compromised in a relationship.
Our anger may be a signal that we are doing more and giving more than we can comfortably do or give. Or our anger may warn us that others are doing too much for us, at the expense of our own competence and growth.
Just as physical pain tells us to take our hand off the hot stove, the pain of our anger preserves the very integrity of our self.
Our anger can motivate us to say “no” to the ways in which we are defined by others and “yes” to the dictates of our inner self.”
