Have you ever been told, “You’re so angry!” and then felt wrong or ashamed?
Is it okay for your wife, girlfriend, ex — or any woman for that matter — to lash out at you in anger or rage, but if you become angry in return, you’re labeled the scary-angry guy while she’s only expressing her feelings?
Have you had to disavow your feelings, especially angry feelings, in your relationship to the point where you feel shut down and maybe a little (or a lot) depressed?
Do you experience mute rage, meaning that when you’re angry, you can’t articulate it? Like if you opened your mouth that nothing would come out but a silent, impotent scream?
Are you afraid that if you let go and express your anger that you’ll lose control of yourself?
Are you recently out of a bad relationship, marriage or divorce and don’t know what to do with your anger?
Are you sick and tired of hearing that, “men aren’t good at expressing emotions” or, even more ludicrous, that “men don’t have emotions?” Worse yet, do you believe it?
If you’re a woman married to a man with a crazy, abusive ex, do you ever find yourself wondering why your husband seems numbed out and unphased while you are legitimately angry at his ex’s latest whacko stunt?
Do you feel your anger for your partner? If so, then have a listen to this BlogTalkRadio program.
