A Note From Mark Felber

For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.

Confidence and Self-Respect Through Conflict

Question: Would you rather go to the dentist for a root canal or go to a friend and confront her with something that bothers you?

If you picked a root canal, you're not alone. Most people will do anything to avoid conflict and all the accompanying feelings of anger and frustration. On the list of things people love to do, confrontation probably ranks lower than standing in line at the DMV or, yes, even oral surgery.

But conflict doesn't have to be like that. Not only is conflict a normal part of life, it can be managed and even made into a positive jumping-off point for becoming a stronger and calmer person. Confronting someone -- be it a business partner or a family member -- and feeling that both of you "won" can be as exhilarating as jumping out of a plane. And in the case of conflict, your life-saving parachute is a set of tools that help you survive any encounter or conflict situation.

How Well Do You Express Anger?

Not only does pent-up anger not feel good, but it's bad for our health, potentially leading to depression, high blood pressure and other stress-related conditions. Learning healthy ways to express anger can help us feel better physically and emotionally and bring more authenticity and intimacy into our lives.

Answer the following true/false questions to discover how well you express anger.

Set 1

  1. I build up resentments over time, and then let them all out in one big blowup.

  2. I sometimes cut people out of my life when they make me angry.

  3. It's unsafe to express anger. I internalize it and then end up feeling depressed.
