Healing from Relational Anger

by Jan 13, 2021

Relationships often create baggage.

One of the hardest truths to recognize in this life is that we often are angry at others for not doing what we needed for ourselves. It’s a difficult thing to accept, because it’s often easier to shift the blame onto someone else than to accept that there’s more to the story. 

That’s not to say that our loved ones, former friends, or those who have hurt us in the past haven’t been at fault. However, much of the pain we experience can stem from not advocating for what we needed in the moment. 

My mother was one such person I had to resolve these feelings with. Sadly she had passed away long before I realized I had feelings I needed to confront her about. What are we to do when the people who have hurt us are no longer here to hear us out and reconcile? 

In today’s episode, I want to spend a couple minutes with you digging into how we can release anger, emotional hurt, and settle the negative feelings we hold toward others… whether they’re available to reconcile with or not.

In this episode you’ll learn about…

  • We are angry at other people. (1:09)
  • Avoiding resolving shameful relationships. (2:26)
  • Who are you REALLY angry with? (4:46)
  • Remaining unconditionally loving. (7:20)
  • Being the first to offer an olive branch. (9:12)
