Anger can have negative connotations. But is that fair? As humans, we experience all kinds of emotions, and anger is just an emotion that can be a habit or can be suppressed, or it can be unpredictable.
In this episode private counselor and social worker, Sarah Loverdi talks about the benefits of anger, and why we hate to love it.
Anger is not all good or bad, and there can be a place for it. It can also control us if we are not careful. Midlife women can get angry at aging, and dwell in the past. This is an example of choosing to stay angry instead of making a change. Once again this is a story that one may choose to believe or not. It is certainly true that we cannot take back our youth, but we can live healthy regardless of our chronological age.

I’m working on letting go of the past-it’s been tough but thanks for the motivation to continue to work on this!
Michele- You are welcome. Keep it up and know that your anger is not good or bad unless it keeps you from living the way you want to live.
I enjoyed listening to the idea that anger is neither good or bad, and may act as a catalyst for change. Feeling strongly about something isn’t a weakness, but a strength. Sometimes we are angry based upon perceptions, and I have done CBT, so it is always helpful to look at how we are thinking.
Jess- Perceptions matter. We can learn so much from the stories we believe about situations in our life.
Understanding not judging our anger is so important. Thanks for sharing with us.
Rosemary- well said!
