Best Affirmations for Anger

Drawing from my experience and my writing, here are four best affirmations for Anger.


On Anger

Intense, feeling uncontrollable, the emotion of anger pushes at places I’d rather leave alone.

But that’s why it pushes because anger is almost always a symptom of another emotion or experience which I am ignoring or unaware.

Anger’s strength is enough to attempt to deny.

I am not well-trained to handle strong urgent feeling which are negative and unwanted.

What to do?

Pay attention.

Look behind anger for the source, the gift, the soul’s motivation.

Affirmation #1:

Affirmation #1 for Anger by Cheryl Marlene

I no longer hold back expressing my emotion.

Stuffed feelings and ignored emotion create pressure and tension within body, mind and heart.

This tension pushes for release and, left unattended, can develop into trauma and physical expression.

If negative emotion is not brought forward, feeling can begin to back up, resulting in numbness or a feeling of disconnection.

In small steps, I begin to express to myself how I feel.

I allow myself to bring emotion into the present moment by stating, “I feel XYZ.”

As I practice with emotion which doesn’t feel so potent, over time I will learn to acknowledge the bigger, more overwhelming emotions.

I don’t hold back.

I allow in small steps.

As I move forward, I affirm:

I no longer hold back expressing my emotion.


Affirmation #2:

I understand anger is a symptom of something bothering me.

Anger has reasons and is often a symptom of a deeper issue.

Anger is connected to deeper emotion.

Anger can hide the truth of feelings.

When anger shuts me down, then whatever is behind is shut down as well.

When I feel angry, simply ask, “Why? Why in this moment am I responding in anger?

In my willingness to question, I can find transformation by choosing:

I understand anger is a symptom of something bothering me.


Affirmation #3:

Affirmation #3 for Anger by Cheryl Marlene

In my anger, I find the gift of self-understanding.

When resistance to feeling angry is reduced, it is easier to create space to examine the roots and branches of anger.

Part of anger is a habitual response.

Another part of anger is a reasonable reaction to a frustrating or vexing situation.

And the most important part is that anger is a front for deeper, more perplexing emotions or reactions to experience.

While understanding that anger is offering a new perspective is challenging, I realize that changing my habit will shift my life.

Thus:

In my anger, I find the gift of self-understanding.


Affirmation #4:

I am no longer afraid to give attention to my anger.

The point is not to make anger go away.

The intention is to learn to not let anger take me over.

The powerful feelings appear overwhelming, pushing in directions of response which feel out of control and harmful.

Anger unleashed without conscious intent can be ugly and terrifying.

As I learn to step out of resistance to anger and consider what the anger is about, the pressure is defused, and I am no longer controlled by my fear of anger.

In my openness, I learn:

I am no longer afraid to give attention to my anger.
