Anger and Respect
The Clean-Cut Way to Handle Frustrations
W elcome to Season 1, Episode 1 of the MarriagePath Radio podcast. Most people do not think of anger as constructive, understandably so. Quite commonly, this emotion is accompanied with harsh rhetoric and a belligerent spirit. In this podcast, we’ll explore how the negative forms of anger can be adjusted into helpful communication, and it all begins by maintaining respect for the other.
Listen to This Week’s Episode!
In this episode, we learned that:
- Respect can be given even when it has not been earned.
- Respect involves the acknowledgement of the other person’s inherent worth.
- By showing respect you set the stage for the legitimate message beneath the anger to be received.
One of the most important aspects to positive change is communication and questions are the best way to gain deeper insights and develop more innovative solutions. So each week, I ask a question.
“Why do you suppose so many people have difficulty combining anger with respect?”
