crossroads for anger

18 don't stay angry

Anger tells us something is wrong.  We then have a choice: to become immersed in the anger, often leading to poor or weak decisions and worse actions, or we can do something about what’s wrong – we can get creative.

One place to begin is to ask questions about our felt anger.  Perhaps the prime question is: Which of my values has just been transgressed by this?

Our values come from the deepest places our lives, guiding us and making it possible to respond with foresight, intention, and love.

Great questions help us to open our minds, in turn allowing us to open our hearts to the whole situation, towards coming up with an imaginative response.

When we connect to our values, we know there are many responses we can select from.

Create, give, enjoy.
