The Hurt Behind Bombastic Emotions

Season 1, Episode 14

A ngry people often display a forceful and bold mannerism, giving the appearance of strength and confidence.

This episode will examine how a truly secure nature is at the heart of constructive anger.

Something to Think about

  • Secure people communicate anger with respect, not insults.

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.

“When your anger gets the best of you, what insecurity are you commonly struggling with at that moment?”
