Anger Turned Inside Out: New Perspective On Anger

Ross Rosenberg Anger

  • Anger is hurt and fear of abandonment turned inside out.
  • Anger is a secondary feeling that is often identified as the primary emotion. It, therefore, never communicates anything constructive.
  • Behind every terrifying roar of anger is a hurt or frightened person who is ineffectively trying to get others to love, affirm and accept them.
  • Anger is a futile and paradoxical boundary that some people utilize in order to avoid being hurt.
  • Anger is often confused with real power and strength.
  • Anger that achieves control and domination ALWAYS encourages dissent and rebellion.
  • Control with intimidating anger requires a constant flow of it.
  • Intimidated people often adapt to anger, thereby requiring higher levels of destruction.
  • Eventually, the angry person is expelled from their position of power and domination, which reveals them as the abusive coward that they really are.
  • Anger is misidentified as a powerful sense of righteousness and conviction.
  • Hurtful anger always backfires when used against the one’s you love.
  • Anger always divides relationships, never reconciles them
  • Intimidating anger may be used to bully or control, but in actuality, it is a defensive reaction from a frightened or cowardly person.
  • The angry, intimidating people were defenseless victims of aggression or abuse at one time.
  • After the destructive consequences of hurtful anger, many people regret the harm they caused.
  • Anger NEVER communicates one’s deeper more fundamental feelings.
  • Intimidating anger does not come from a position of strength but rather a place of fear.
  • We must be the guardians against our own anger. With vigilance, we can avoid falling prey to ourselves.
  • What’s in being “king of the jungle” when you are alone?
