When You Get Angry, It's Time for a Reframe
Understand what makes you angry to avoid further problems
I got a few nasty messages this week. One person called me an asshat and a mediocre white man. I'm still wondering whether the two insults were redundant.
The day before, I had asked my audience what topics they wanted me to address in the future. One of the more popular themes was how to deal with anger, and it turned out to be timely (Thank you, Ricardo Martinez).
I don't get mad often. In fact, people who know me well have told me I don’t get angry often enough. Apparently, I have a habit of taking things in stride that should make my blood boil. Which either means I know little about pure rage or a fair amount about how to avoid letting it consume me.
