How to Deal With Anger Through Compassion

Bamik H Insightful article, Inspiring, Just Cause, Love The Goodness, Notes, Parenting 0 Comments

Almost every time we get angry, it’s because something isn’t going our way. I’ve been practicing a method for how to deal with anger that I call Expanding the Envelope of Compassion. Before we talk about the method, let’s look at the progression of anger.

Here’s what happens:

  • We want something a certain way.
  • Other people or occasionally, the Universe doesn’t give us that something in that certain way.
  • We get mad. And sometimes we lose control.

We go through the same process as a selfish child and it’s totally OK! Leo Babauta from Zen Habits takes us through a beautiful method he refers to as Expanding the Envelope of Compassion in this months SPECIAL RED EDITION of Healthy Mama Magazine.

At the end of the article, you may still have moments in life where you’ll feel anger, disappointment or frustration – but that’s life.
