EPISODE 332 Unlike other emotions, anger is seductive. While sadness or loneliness are not emotions we like to feel, sometimes anger feels good. We have all had moments where everything comes to a head and we lose our temper. Today’s podcast is about how to harness anger in ways that are beneficial for us and others, while avoiding anger’s poisonous side effects. Thanks to Rick Hanson and his book Resilience for many of the ideas in this podcast.
